Stallone slides back to ICM

Thesp 'Driven' to seek old reps

Sylvester Stallone discharged the William Morris Agency early Monday morning to return to Intl. Creative Management.

The timing is somewhat ironic: Stallone’s career had admittedly slowed in recent years, but he sped to the top of the box office last weekend, toplining the racing-themed pic “Driven” from Warner Bros. and Franchise Pictures. Pic is the highest three-day grosser in the history of Franchise Pictures, taking in $12.2 million.

The actor will be repped by a team of agents at ICM lead by percentery co-prexy Ed Limato, Andrea Eastman and former William Morris motion picture co-head John Burnham, who joined ICM in February.

Stallone had been repped by Jim Wiatt at WMA for the last year and a half, having followed him to WMA when Wiatt ankled ICM.

A WMA spokesman confirmed the move, declining to comment other than to say that “we wish him well.”

Stallone is currently lensing Franchise’s “Avenging Angelo,” playing a mob bodyguard, and will also topline another WB/Franchise pic, “Dolan’s Cadillac,” which is skedded to begin lensing after any industry strikes this summer.
