Add another platform for Ridley and Tony Scott. The pair are collaborating on a web video series for Call of Duty Elite TV, an upcoming service built around the Activision game franchise. The series from Ridley Scott Associates, called Friday Night Fights, will bring real life rivals together to battle it out in Call of Duty multiplayer. Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg announced plans for the series Friday night in a presentation at the two-day game festival Call of Duty XP in Playa Vista, Calif. The Scotts have proven themselves quite the multi-taskers. As Deadline’s Mike Fleming reported exclusively last month, Ridley is revisiting Blade Runner, on top of working on his 2012 summer release Prometheus, and Tony is preparing to reboot The Wild Bunch while also gearing up for Hell’s Angels. Both are heavily involved in their prolific Scott Free Productions, which has built up a television empire, receiving 23 Emmy nominations this year. Call of Duty Elite TV launches in November, with other programming for the web TV outfit coming from Jason Bateman and Will Arnett’s DumbDumb, in partnership with Ben Silverman’s multimedia studio Electus.
