Tenpercentery snatches up UTA trio
ICM has signed Bernie Mac, David Duchovny and writer-director John Stockwell.
All three were repped by UTA.
Mac, who just taped the 100th episode of his self-titled Fox sitcom, departed after two of his original three agents, David Schiff and Marty Bowen, left agenting. He’s in talks for a hiatus film role, but his TV series commissions stay with UTA.
Duchovny chose to return to his longtime ICM agent Risa Shapiro, who repped him for 12 years. As an actor, Duchovny recently completed the Vincent Perez-directed “The Secret,” Bart Freundlich’s “Trust the Man” and Jake Kasdan’s “The TV Set.”
Duchovny has carved out a second career as a writer-director. He’s in the process of following his debut, “The House of D,” with a script he wrote and plans to direct called “Bucky Fucking Dent.” Pic is a father/son story, and the title refers to the dad’s status as a huge fan of the Boston Red Sox.
Stockwell last wrote and directed “Into the Blue,” and he is attached to direct “Chasing the Whale,” a pic New Line is picking up after New Regency put it into turnaround. Stockwell also penned “Breast Men,” wrote and directed “Cheaters” and “Blue Crush” and helmed “Crazy/Beautiful.”
