UPDATED: I’m told the director of this year’s Oscar-nominated There Will Be Blood “just wanted to move on. It wasn’t any one thing. He wants a change of scenery. It’s all very amicable.” I’ve heard he’s already taking meetings with other agencies. Also, actor John C Reilly just fired Endeavor in order to go to CAA. The star of the box office disappointment Walk Hard had once been repped by CAA. Then left to go to Endeavor. Then left to go to UTA. Then returned to Endeavor just recently to follow the three UTA defectors Nick Stevens, Lisa Hallerman and Sharon Sheinwold. Now he returns to CAA. Jeez, it’s brutal out there, just brutal.
