LONDON — John Malkovich has left International Creative Management to join the William Morris Agency for worldwide representation.
He will be repped by Arnold Rifkin, the agency’s head of worldwide motion pictures, in Los Angeles and Charles Finch, WMA’s European head of motion pictures, in London. WMA already reps the actor’s production company, Smith-Malkovich.
WMA recently brokered a two-year, nonexclusive production deal between Granada Film and Smith-Malkovich, under which Malkovich will make his feature directing debut with “The Libertine,” which will star Johnny Depp.
At this time, the film looks set to go ahead with its existing backing by Granada Film, Newmarket Capital and Goldwyn Films. But ICM, which represents Depp, is still representing the film’s North American distribution rights.
