Becker switches to WMA

Harold Becker has signed with the William Morris Agency, leaving Creative Artists Agency after about 12 years of representation there. The move is expected to be the first of many talent shifts around town.

Becker, who last directed “City Hall” for Castle Rock Entertainment, made the decision to leave at the beginning of the holidays. He had been in development on “Double Jeopardy” at Paramount but turned his attention elsewhere. Becker will now be repped by Arnold Rifkin and John Burnham.

Before CAA, Becker was repped by Stan Kamen at WMA. Becker’s other credits include “The Onion Field,” “Taps,” “Sea of Love” and “Malice.”
