Gersh to Represent Budd Schulberg’s Estate

Gersh has singed a deal with Betsy Schulberg, widow to Budd Schulberg, to represent the iconic author and screenwriter’s estate.

Gersh and Betsy Schulberg will work together to shepherd the multiple adaptations and revivals currently in preparation.

Schulberg is best known for penning the script to “On the Waterfront” starring Marlon Brando. Other past credits include “What Makes Sammy Run?,” “The Disenchanted” and “The Harder They Fall.”

“Without Budd Schulberg, the Hollywood that we know of today wouldn’t exist, as he created the paradigm for what success stands for in this business as a writer and creative talent,” said Gersh co-head Bob Gersh. “He was an American treasure and a Hollywood legend, and we couldn’t be more pleased at Gersh to work with his estate on future projects that will entertain and inform audiences for generations to come.”

Schulberg passed away at 95 in 2009.
