International Creative Management has moved to bolster its books-to-film department by hiring veteran agent Nick Harris to co-head those operations with Josie Freedman in its Los Angeles office.
Harris will join ICM on Nov. 1. The department includes powerful lit agent Ron Bernstein.
Harris has extensive experience in negotiating film and TV rights starting at AP Watt Literary Agency based in London. He moved to Los Angeles four years ago and joined Rabineau Wachter Sanford Harris as a partner before moving to Mosaic.
Harris negotiated film rights for “The Last King of Scotland,” “The Men Who Stare at Goats” and “We Bought a Zoo.”
Freedman has been at ICM since 2001 and has negotiated deals on “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Illusionist,” “Thank You for Smoking,” “King Dork” and “Boomsday.”
ICM’s books-to-film department has packaged properties including “Sex and the City,” “No Country for Old Men,” “A Mighty Heart,” projects involving the Dr. Seuss estate, “North Country” and “Little Bee.”
