WMA adds Schweiger to stable

NEW YORK — William Morris has carved a niche by shaping foreign talent for U.S. films. Its latest signing is Til Schweiger, a huge star in Germany after films like “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and Germany’s all-time gross champ, “Mannerpension.”

The star of “Maybe _ Maybe Not,” who speaks English, has filmed the French-Polish co-production “The Brute” and played a supporting role in “The Replacement Killers.” He’s repped by Lee Stollman, Michelle Stern and Gene Parseghian. Schweiger will continue doing German films as well; in Germany, he’s managed by PMC Cologne’s Ica Souvignier and Hinrich Sickenberger.

Morris’ other talent imports include Jackie Chan, John Woo, Kirk Wong (who’s helming “The Big Hit” for TriStar), Chow Yun-Fat (starring in TriStar’s “The Replacement Killers”), Stanley Tong (who helmed Chan’s “Rumble in the Bronx”), new Bond girl Michelle Yeoh and French director Patrice Leconte (“Ridicule”).
