‘Taken’ helmer, ‘Tetro’ star ink with CAA

Tenpercentery snags Pierre Morel, Alden Ehrenreich

CAA has signed “Taken” helmer Pierre Morel and “Tetro” star Alden Ehrenreich.

Ehrenreich was initially discovered by Steven Spielberg in a video shown at a bat mitzvah before landing a lead role opposite Vincent Gallo in Francis Ford Coppola’s semi-autobiographical film “Tetro.” Thesp next stars alongside Elle Fanning in Coppola’s horror pic “Twixt” and will also be seen as Mia Wasikowska’s classmate in Fox Searchlight’s thriller “Stoker.”

Morel served as cinematographer on such EuropaCorp films as “The Transporter” and “Unleashed” before making his feature directorial debut with the action pic “District B13.” After 20th Century Fox’s Liam Neeson starrer “Taken” became a surprise hit, grossing more than $226 million worldwide, Morel went on to direct John Travolta in the Luc Besson-produced actioner “From Paris With Love.”

Ehrenreich continues to be repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Patty Felker, while Morel remains repped by Sentient Entertainment and attorney Gretchen Rush.
