ICM lassoes veteran directors

Brest, Wang have signed with John Burnham

ICM has signed two veteran helmers: Martin Brest and Wayne Wang.

Both have signed with John Burnham.

Brest helmed “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Midnight Run” and “Scent of a Woman” but lost momentum in recent years with “Meet Joe Black” and “Gigli.” He is now writing both a spec script for a new directing vehicle, as well as a TV series.

Wang has had a long career alternating between commercial pics (“Joy Luck Club,” “Maid in Manhattan”) and indie fare (“Smoke,” “Chinese Box”). He most recently helmed “A Thousand Years of Good Prayers” and “The Princess of Nebraska.”
