Management companies merge
Mark and Christine Holder are melding their literary and talent management company Holder Management into Zero Gravity Management, the Los Angeles-based lit management company formed in 2003 by Eric Williams.Mark Holder said joining forces with Williams seemed a good idea in the current crunch. He and wife Christine Holder built their firm over six years. They rep around 40 clients including writer Larry Cohen (“Cellular”), directors Andrzej Bartkowiak (“Romeo Must Die”) and Prachya Pinkaew (“Ong Bak”), and actor Scott Adkins (“Ninja”). “Right now, you can hang on the vine, wither away and die, or you can do something to make a more powerful, multifaceted enterprise,” he said. The Holders developed several projects with Zero Gravity and developed a familiarity with Williams. Zero Gravity reps such directors as Mans Marlind & Bjorn Stein (“Shelter”) and Simon Fellows (“Malice in Wonderland”), and screenwriters including Michael Johnson (“Sherlock Holmes”).
