Guymon Casady

Management 360

THE DEALMAKER: A founding partner of Management 360, Guymon Casady is known for his keen eye for recognizing emerging talent and opening up important opportunities for them.

His list of longtime clients includes director Marc Forster, author-screenwriter David Benioff, writer-directors Kieran and Michele Mulroney, director Louis Leterrier, writer Michael Tolkin, writer-directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck, “Mean Creek” helmer Jacob Estes, and writers D.V. DeVincentis, Sacha Gervasi, Dan Weiss, Rupert Sanders and Josh Zetumer.

Casady began as a CAA assistant, became a manager at Industry Entertainment, then left to form 360 with Eric Kranzler, David Seltzer, Suzan Bymel, Evelyn O’Neill and Daniel Rappaport.

They rep clients and generate film packages the company produces. That includes Atlantic Monthly article “The Infiltrator,” now to be a Warner Bros. drama, with Leonardo DiCaprio attached. They turned the Peter Morgan British mini “The Jury” into a Fox 2000 film that Forster will direct.

“When you work so intensely with someone, you want a good human being with high morals, who’s straightforward and honest, and Guymon is those things,” Forster says. “His philosophy is to look beyond the next movie and toward longevity, and knowing it’s not about money, because if you do good work, that will always follow.”

KEY DEALS: Helping Forster broaden from “Monster’s Ball” to the upcoming Bond film “Quantum of Solace”; now teaming with Weiss to turn the fantasy novel franchise “Game of Thrones” into an HBO series; and guiding Zetumer from “The Infiltrator” to writing on the Bond film and scripting the Peter Berg-directed “Dune” remake.

DEALMAKER DOS: “Creativity and thinking out of the box will always allow you to find a way to make a deal.”

DEALMAKER DON’TS: “Don’t think too rigidly or treat the other with anything less than respect.”

TOP DEALMAKERS ENCOUNTERED: “My five partners. We have a combined 100 years of experience. There’s nobody in town we don’t know.”
