'Fall Guy' first out the gate under new agreement
HOLLYWOOD — Less than a year after its formation, management shingle Management 360 has inked a two-year, first-look overall production deal with Warner Bros. Pictures.
Shingle will not have offices on the lot but will continue to operate from its Beverly Hills base.
First project to be identified under the deal will be a bigscreen version of 1980s action series “The Fall Guy,” being penned by Tristan Patterson, which Management 360 sold to the studio last month. Original series starred Lee Majors as a Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a bounty hunter. Series ran on ABC from 1981-86.
Management 360 was formed in November in a merger that drew from three management companies to create the entity whose partners are managers Suzan Bymel, Evelyn O’Neill, Daniel Rappaport, Guymon Casady, Eric Kranzler and David Seltzer (Daily Variety, Nov. 14, 2002).
Clients include thesps Tobey Maguire, Reese Witherspoon, Kirsten Dunst, Julianne Moore, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jimmy Fallon and Eva Mendes; directors McG, Marc Forster and Joe Carnahan; and “Troy” screenwriter David Benioff.
Deal with Management 360 marks the second Warner Bros. Pictures has inked with a management company. Studio also has an overall production relationship with Industry Entertainment.
