Mamet makes tracks for ICM on pic side

Acclaimed writer holds on to Wender for legal aide

Screenwriter and director David Mamet has signed with International Creative Management for representation in motion pictures.

The salty-tongued, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrightwill remain with Gotham-based Rosenstone-Wender for legit representation.

Well known for his original screenplays (he was Oscar-nommed for both “Wag the Dog” and “The Verdict”), Mamet has been taking more assignments as screenwriter-for-hire: Last year, he wrote and helmed his original pic “Heist” for Franchise/Warner Bros. but also found the time to co-write the adaptation of Thomas Harris’ “Hannibal” for MGM, for which he shared credit with Steve Zaillian.

Mamet has also appeared behind the camera with increasing regularity, helming 1997’s “The Spanish Prisoner,” 1999’s “The Winslow Boy” and 2000’s “State and Main.”

He is currently developing a take on the Robert Louis Stevenson yarn “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” called “The Diary of a Young London Physician” for producer Art Linson’s Indelible Pictures.

Mamet was previously at CAA.
