Brit WMA taps Roeg

Prod now head of indie films for Europe

LONDON — The William Morris Agency has continued the aggressive expansion of its London office by hiring producer Luc Roeg as head of independent films for Europe.

Roeg, son of director Nicolas Roeg, will be involved in packaging movie projects, as well as representing writers and directors.

He will work closely with Charles Finch, WMA’s head of motion pictures Europe, and Ben Silverman, head of international packaging, as well as WMA’s L.A.-based Cassian Elwes.

Roeg’s production credits through his company Dakota Films include “Let Him Have It,” his father’s “Two Deaths,” and Oliver Parker’s “Othello,” as well as “The Matchmaker” for Working Title Films.

“It’s an exciting time in the agency business in Europe at the moment and WMA are at the forefront of their field,” Roeg said in a statement.

Roeg is the seventh new agent to be hired by WMA in London since the arrival of Finch and Silverman, which, along with the recent move to plush new Mayfair offices, amounts to a very substantial financial commitment to growing the agency’s Euro business.
