CAA nabs Liam Neeson

Actor declined to move with Limato to WMA

CAA has emerged as the surprise winner in the tug of war for Liam Neeson waged between WMA and ICM after the exit of his longtime agent Ed Limato.

Neeson declined to make the move with Limato to WMA, staying in the ICM fold with Eddy Yablans. CAA, which also reps Neeson’s wife, Natasha Richardson, confirmed the signing.

Neeson makes the move while in production on “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” reprising his role as the voice of the lion Aslan. Thesp, who recently completed production on the Pierre Morel-directed thriller “Taken,” is next booked to star in Richard Eyre’s “The Other Man” opposite Juliette Binoche.

Neeson is also attached to reunite with “Schindler’s List” helmer Steven Spielberg in a Tony Kushner-scripted film about Abraham Lincoln based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of the slain president.
