EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that WME just took away client Archie Comics from CAA. (“This is like Hasbro. CAA had Hasbro, and did nothing. And then CAA lost Hasbro to WME,” an insider tells me.) WME now also is representing the rights to The Terminator franchise on behalf of Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacifor LLC which had the winning $29.5 million bid, and a commitment of $5 million for each of three produced films. That deal was approved by the Los Angeles Bankruptcy judge.
