Marshall, Thykier Set Up Film and TV Production House Archery Pictures

29 September 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Liza Marshall, former chief at Ridley Scott’s Scott Free London, has joined forces with Kris Thykier to set up film and television production company Archery Pictures.

Marshall will become joint managing director of the company with Thykier, who will shutter his company PeaPie Films, and move his staff and slate across to the new entity.

Key executives at Archery will include Pip Williams, senior development and production executive, and Mairi Bett, head of physical production.

Thykier, whose films have grossed over $325 million at the worldwide box-office, has two films in production: “Summer of ‘92,” directed by Kasper Barfoed, and “Adam Jones,” which he is executive producing for The Weinstein Company. Thykier is also in post-production on “Woman in Gold,” starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

8 August 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Highly-regarded production executive Liza Marshall is to step down as head of Ridley Scott’s London-based TV and film production arm Scott Free UK, she confirmed to Variety Friday.

Since joining Scott Free UK in 2009, Marshall has overseen a broad range of TV and film projects. These have included feature film “Welcome to the Punch,” a crime thriller starring James McAvoy and Mark Strong, and Kevin Macdonald’s YouTube pic “Life in a Day, »

A brooding bunch of Brit baddies: the new Jaguar advert

'Strong utilised the persuasive power of a red-hot poker in The Long Firm, before moving with the times by using a giant microwave in Kick-Ass'

Crime doesn't pay. As Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Baron Greenback will attest, you can have all the hidden lairs, ruthless henchmen and tanks full of piranhas in the world, but you'll get your comeuppance in the end. Still, as Jaguar seems to be claiming, at least you can drive a shiny moll-magnet while working your nefarious schemes.

It feels like the Sixth Doctor and Peri have found themselves in a Tenth Doctor pseudo-historical, smuggling in educational tidbits amongst the tales of doomed races, heretical astronomy and evil men with goatees.
