No adapter for an Arri 2 but one could get a hardfront conversion. There are a fair number of Arri 2's that were converted to BNCR.

The flange focus isn't the only consideration.
The diameter. A BNC hardfront on a IIC has to have part of the shutter covering machined off for it to fit.

The lock on the Std Arri mts is two spring loaded blades. Not very robust.

Most BNCR mount Super Baltars are actually S35R mounts with a BNCR adaptor permanantly locked on.
It might be possible to machine an S35R>PL adapter. I'm not sure about the width of the S35R mts
