After seven years with the tenpercentery, Todd Feldman is ankling International Creative Management and heading for the William Morris Agency as a senior veepee.
Feldman started as a mailroom trainee at ICM, rising to become the assistant to and protege of former ICM co-topper Jim Wiatt, now co-CEO of WMA. Many had speculated openly that Feldman would join other ICM-to-WMA transplants like Danny Greenberg and Colton Gramm.
“Todd is a first-rate lit agent,” Wiatt said. “His ability and style of agenting will serve him well here — he’s very collaborative and likes being part of the creative process.”
Feldman, 30, has enjoyed a somewhat meteoric rise since having started at ICM at age 23. His clients — all of whom are expected to join him at William Morris — include Todd Phillips, director of “Road Trip”; Zack Snyder, helmer of Columbia’s upcoming “S.W.A.T.”; Jim Herzfeld, scribe of “Meet the Parents”; David Ayer, who penned “U-571” and WB’s upcoming “Training Day”; and George Gallo, writer-director of “Double Take.”
They also include Charlie Peters, who’d sold his untitled George Hamilton project at Beacon Pictures; Jon Hoffman, writer of the “Untitled USS Indianapolis project” set up at WB; Dewey Nicks, helmer of “Slackers”; and Jon Bokencamp, who wrote WB’s forthcoming Jennifer Lopez starrer “Taking Lives.”
In addition, there are Marc Forster, helmer of “Monster’s Ball”; Leslie Dixon, scribe of “The Thomas Crown Affair”; Amy Holden Jones, writer of “Indecent Proposal”; Clay Tarver (“Squelch”); and Ken Nolan, who wrote upcoming Revolution Studios actioner “Black Hawk Down.”
“It’s gratifying to be reunited with people who have meant so much to me,” Feldman said, “both to me personally, and to my career as an agent.”
