Marshall joins CAA

'Nine' director leaves ICM

Rob Marshall has signed with CAA.

Marshall, who built his career at ICM, leaves as he is preparing to direct “Nine” for the Weinstein Co. Daniel Day-Lewis will star with Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench in the musical, inspired by the Fellini film “8½,” which is scheduled to shoot this fall.

The director and choreographer’s last musical, “Chicago,” won six Oscars including picture and earned Marshall a director nomination. He also helmed “Memoirs of a Geisha” and directed and choreographed “Annie” for ABC.

Marshall becomes the latest name to change agency addresses in the last few months, but his exit is a big blow to ICM, which has maintained a strong list of writers and directors.
