Super-agent Ed Limato to leave ICM
07.16.07 by REELZ
Co-President of ICM (International Creative Management) Ed Limato announced Friday that he will be parting ways with the agency, reports Variety. Why does this matter to movie fans?
Well, it's simple: Limato represents such Hollywood power players as Mel Gibson, Denzel Washington, Liam Neeson, Richard Gere, Billy Crystal and Steve Martin. And whither he goes, they shall follow.
The trouble, of course, is that Limato is held to a non-compete agreement, which prevents him from taking his clients with him should he choose to part ways with the agency. He will likely contest the agreement.
We'll be sure to keep you posted. After all, the future of Apocalypto II and City Slickers XVI may hang in the balance!
