Following Guillod to IPG will be longtime talent manager Jeff Morrone and Mike Carr, a former agent colleague of Guillod’s at UTA.

“We have worked closely together for a long time,” Guillod and the IPG partners said in a joint statement. “We see this relationship as a natural and smart fit in the aggressive growth of our talent and literary business, as well as an opportunity to continue to increase our global vision in the packaging of our source material.”

The expanded company will represent a diverse list of clients including Paul Haggis, Bobby Moresco, Dennis Lehane, Demian Bichir, Michael Connelly, James Ellroy, Yann Martel, Ken Bruen, Gabrielle Union, Donald Fasion, William Fichtner, Joyce Carol Oates, Andre Dubus III and Oni Press, as well as the estates of Stephen Ambrose, Jim Thompson and Mark Twain.

IPG’s source material is responsible for such current and past TV hits as “Boardwalk Empire,” “True Blood,” “Criminal Minds” and “Rome,” while on the film side, it has “Shutter Island,” “The Last King of Scotland,” “The Lincoln Lawyer” and “London Boulevard” to its credit.
