UTA has promoted film agent Jeremy Barber to become the percentery’s 19th partner.

Barber, who joined the agency in 2003, headed the indie film packaging group before repping movie talent and literary clients. His list includes Don Cheadle, Patrick Dempsey, Steve Coogan, Sigourney Weaver, actor-writer Justin Theroux, scribe Peter Baynham and writer-directors Peter Morgan, Noah Baumbach, John Carney, Julian Fellowes and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck.

“Jeremy has been an extraordinary asset to UTA in the motion picture department and to the agency overall,” UTA chairman Jim Berkus said.

Barber was a Loeb & Loeb lawyer before he rose in the production ranks at Artisan and then became president of management/production company Catch 23.
