'Grudge' star gets new home after leaving William Morris
HOLLYWOOD — Sarah Michelle Gellar has signed with UTA.
Thesp, who most recently toplined Sony’s horror smash “The Grudge,” is looking to move into producing, with a focus on features. UTA will assist in those efforts while also repping Gellar in all other areas.
Gellar left William Morris earlier this year (Daily Variety, March 16). She’ll continue to be repped by her managers at the Firm and attorney Kevin Yorn.
Thesp recently inked to star in the Warner Independent/Odd Lot feature “A Girl’s Guide to Hunting & Fishing,” to be helmed by Marc Klein. After that, she’ll begin production on the sci-fi thriller “Southland Tales,” from scribe-helmer Richard Kelly.
She’s already wrapped the supernatural thriller “Revolver,” starring Sam Shepard.
Gellar staked her claim to stardom playing the lead in Joss Whedon’s skein “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” which ran for six seasons on the WB and UPN. Her feature credits include “Cruel Intentions,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and both “Scooby Doo” features.
