Phillippe fires rep team

Attorney Weber still works for 'Igby' thesp

Ryan Phillippe took the unusual step Friday of discharging both his agents at the William Morris Agency and his managers at Brillstein Grey Entertainment. A spokesman for the actor said he is taking meetings and is currently unsure of where he’ll next sign.

Phillippe, who has appeared in such pics as “Gosford Park” and “Cruel Intentions,” most recently starred in United Artists’ black comedy “Igby Goes Down” last year.

He will next star in Teutonic helmer Roland Suso Richter’s “The I Inside,” opposite Sarah Polley; pic will be distribbed in North America, Italy and Australia/New Zealand by Miramax Films.

Phillippe and producing partner David Siegel’s Lucid Films is currently partnered with Will Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment to produce the drama “White Boy Shuffle” for Intermedia Films. Adapted by Elizabeth Hunter (Par’s upcoming “The Fighting Temptations”) from the novel by Paul Beatty, pic has helmer Kevin Sullivan (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back”) attached to direct.

Phillippe’s Lucid Films banner has been based at Intermedia for two years, but that pact is set to expire this year.

Phillippe remains represented by attorney David Weber at Offer, Weber and Dern.
