Writer-director John Dahl and his brother, writer Rick Dahl, signed with Creative Artists Agency. They had been at the William Morris Agency.

The Dahls rejoin their former Morris agent Josh Donen who recently switched to CAA (Daily Variety, Aug. 4).

John Dahl most recently directed “Rounders,” starring Matt Damon and Edward Norton, for Miramax. His other directing credits include “Unforgettable,” “The Last Seduction” (which he also wrote) and “Red Rock West,” which he co-wrote with his brother.

Since signing with William Morris in January 1997, the Dahls have set up several projects — including “Blackout” at Miramax, “It Takes a Thief” at Universal; and at least four other projects at various studios — which should keep their dance card filled for some time.
