Manager awakens a Sleeping Giant

Brown launches L.A.-based production company

Former Benderspink manager Dave Brown has ankled to launch his own shingle, Sleeping Giant Entertainment, and brought aboard former WMA staffer Scott Halle as a manager.

Los Angeles-based unit next plans to add a producer to head up its film and TV development and production initiatives.

Brown, who began his career at Writers & Artists, followed by posts at agencies Bruce Brown and Genesis, was previously involved with packaging Lionsgate’s low-budget horror hit “Saw.”

He brings a client list to Sleeping Giant that includes “Dexter” exec producer and scribe James Manos Jr., “Entrapment” helmer Jon Amiel, writer-helmer Michael Patwin and Luke Kasdan, who recently wrapped the indie pic “Don’t Fade Away.”

Brown recently attached David Strathairn to Patwin’s upcoming project “Hereafter,” which will shoot in Thailand in March.

He’ll also exec produce Jerrold E. Brown’s screenplay “Prey” with Sobini Films and Zealot Films. James Marsh is attached to helm the pic, with Laurence Fishburne toplining.
