EXCLUSIVE: After a decade, Tom Drumm has parted ways with Peter Safran. He is forming Think Tank Management and Production, a new shingle where he’ll rep clients and hatch movies and TV.

When Safran left Brillstein-Grey to form The Safran Company in 2006, Drumm followed him. “Peter has been an amazing mentor, and he has given me a great head start in building my business, and creating my own company,” Drumm said. “I look forward to continuing to work with him as a producer,” said Drumm. Safran produced five films last year, including the James Wan-directed The Conjuring, the Paul Walker-starrer Hours, and the Mark Strong-starrer Mindscape. Drumm’s clients Guy Holmes wrote the script, and Jorge Dorado directed it. “It has been a pleasure working closely with Tom over the past decade and I look forward continuing to collaborate with him in the future,” Safran said.

Drumm’s clients includes: actors Nick Frost, Ivana Baquero, Adam Garcia, Ryan Gaul, India de Beaufort; writers Graham Moore, Mark Hammer, Ben Epstein, Tom Shepherd, Will Dunn; directors Gilles Paquet-Brenner, Gabe Ibanez, Juan Carlos Medina, David Palmer, David Victori and Lluis Quilez. He will continue to co-manage actors Owain Yeoman and Nicole Sullivan with Safran.
