Littman hangs hat at Renaissance agency

Industry veteran Robert Littman has joined the Renaissance lit/talent shop as an agent, bringing with him a bag of clients with active projects all over town.

Littman’s helmer client Nicolas Roeg directed the Turner vidpic “Heart of Darkness,” the Joseph Conrad adaptation starring Tim Roth and John Malkovich.

Roeg is also developing “The American Version” for the Nides/McCormick production team and a screen version of Paul Auster’s novel “The Locked Room” for RKO Pictures. Roeg’s thriller “The Two Deaths,” starring Klaus Maria Brandauer and Sonia Braga, is set to shoot in Prague in late March.

Littman also recently sold the rights to late author Christopher Isherwood’s “My Guru and his Disciples” to writer-director Jane Campion, and reps rock video helmer Andy Morahan, who will make “The Highlander III” his feature debut.

Renaissance is fronted by Joel Gotler, Irv Schwartz and Alan Nevins, whose roster includes John Jakes, Joan Collins, Jonathan Carroll and Piers Anthony.

Going through about as many incarnations as Hollywood allows, Littman repped clients like James Mason, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret and Trevor Howard before becoming a producer.

Among the pix Littman supervised are David Lean’s “Ryan’s Daughter,” Ken Russell’s “Tommy,””The Boyfriend” and “Savage Messiah,” and Richard Fleischer’s “The Last Run.”
