Dennis Lehane Signs With CAA (EXCLUSIVE)

New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane has signed with CAA for representation.

Lehane’s novels, including “Mystic River,” “Shutter Island” and “Gone Baby Gone,” have been adapted by such directors as Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese and Ben Affleck. Lehane’s next novel to be adapted will be his crime drama “Live by Night,” which will mark Affleck’s first directing gig since helming Oscar-winning thriller “Argo.”

Lehane made his screenwriting debut with short story “Animal Rescue,” which was adapted by Fox Searchlight as “The Drop.” Lehane has since become highly sought-after screenwriter, having penned such scripts as the upcoming Travis McGee pic “The Deep Blue Good-by” and the remake of “The Prophet” for Neal Moritz.

His TV work includes “The Wire” and “Boardwalk Empire.” He is developing “Ashcliffe,” the prelude to “Shutter Island,” for Paramount TV and HBO.

CAA will work with his other reps. He continues to be managed by Amy Schiffman at Intellectual Property Group. His publishing agent is Ann Rittenberg of Ann Rittenberg Agency in New York, and attorney is Jason Hendler at Hanson, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, & Kaller.
