Brit helmer Beeban Kidron, who recently directed the Marcello Mastroianni-Shirley Mac-Laine pic “Used People,” has been signed by United Talent Agency senior partner Peter Benedek, the agency announced Tuesday.
Kidron, who was formerly repped by Intl. Creative Management, was wooed into the UTA fold on Monday, where her team will include senior partner Jim Berkus, Risa Gertner and Chris Buchanan.
“We had been aware of her for a while, and knew she was looking for new representation,” said Benedek. “She’s an extremely interesting and talented young woman.”
Kidron, who will continue to live in her hometown London, just helmed “Great Moments in Aviation” starring John Hurt, Vanessa Redgrave and Jonathan Pryce.
The pic, which was financed by the BBC, will be distributed domestically by Miramax.
