Duo getting Personal

McTeer, Chaplin, Shearer, Myles among clientele

Marc Epstein and Melanie Greene have formed the Personal Management Co. Venture’s clients include Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman, David Duchovny and “Master and Commander” star Paul Bettany.

Epstein is leaving Handprint Entertainment, where he repped Kidman, Janet McTeer, Ben Chaplin, Martin Donovan, Will Estes and Sam Trammell. Greene has long run her own independent company, and she will be bringing to the venture managers Tammy Rosen, Kesha Williams, Jared Lucan and Richard Murphy, the latter of whom ran a production arm that will be incorporated into Personal Management.

Clients coming from Greene’s side include Harry Shearer, Sophia Myles, Amanda Pays, Madchen Amick, Francis Fisher and Jennifer Westfelt, who wrote and starred in “Kissing Jessica Stein.”

There are two projects being developed at Handprint as potential Kidman vehicles. “Sixteen Pleasures” has a draft coming from John Collee, who worked with Peter Weir on the “Master and Commander” script. “Court and Spark,” a Fox Searchlight project, has a script from Alan Howard. “We’ll continue to produce the projects we have been developing with Nicole and intend to specify clients that we’ll be sharing with Marc,” Pollack said. “This venture seems like a good for him.”

Epstein and Greene met through their clients Kidman and Bettany, who starred in “Dogville.”

“Most of our clients have been with us for many years, and we want to keep a company that is small and focused on representation,” Epstein said.
