Ford signs up with UTA

McQueeney will still rep thesp

NEW YORK — Harrison Ford has signed for representation with United Talent Agency, marking his first relationship with a major agency in 15 years.

The decision follows a surprise round of meetings which Ford and his longtime agent Patricia McQueeney held with UTA, Endeavor, CAA, ICM, William Morris and AMG (Daily Variety, Jan. 10).

The UTA alliance is unusual, in that McQueeney will remain his primary agent, and it will be she who deals directly with UTA. But since every agency pitched Ford, it is considered a coup for UTA to be the one chosen to commission him.

“All of the agencies we met with were terrific, but both Harrison and I feel most comfortable with UTA at this point in time,” McQueeney said Monday evening. “We felt they were the agents who would best help us achieve the goals we’ve set.”

While Ford has long been at the top of submission lists by studios for most scripts, McQueeney and Ford held the round of percentery meetings in an effort to better plug in with cutting-edge writers and directors.
