Helmer Hughes Moves To ICM

Film maker John Hughes signed with International Creative Management Dec. 28, one week after parting with his reps of 10 years at Creative Artists Agency.

In addition to repping him as a writer/producer/director, ICM will expand its representation of Hughes and his production company into television, publishing and music.

Hughes was in talks with ICM upon his exit from CAA.

“The locomotive driving his representation will be his movie business, but he does have other interests,” said ICM chairman Jeff Berg in a telephone interview from Florida.

Berg said the Chicago-based creator of such hits as “Home Alone” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” seeks to increase his activities to include producing a Midwest-based television series and a series of books.

The ICM topper also said Hughes may open a Hollywood office in the first half of 1995.

Hughes will be repped by Berg, ICM president Jim Wiatt, Dave Wirtschafter, Richard Feldman and Elizabeth Rieger. The agency will work day-today with Bill Ryan, Hughes Entertainment prexy. Hughes continues to retain attorney Jake Bloom.
