Hot off Blue Caprice being picked up by Sundance Selects this week, lead actor Isaiah Washington has new management. Two new managers actually. Instead of having an agency, Washington and his Coalhouse Productions have signed with both Caliber Media and Inqlusion Entertainment for representation in all areas. The former Grey’s Anatomy actor was previously with APA. In the Beltway sniper saga Blue Caprice, Washington plays John Allen Muhammad, the older of the two shooters who terrorized the DC and Baltimore area in October 2002. Acting as a father figure, Muhammad instructed Lee Boyd Malvo, played by Tequan Richmond in the film, in the ways of murder. Their rampage left 10 dead and three critically wounded. Washington also served as Executive Producer on the Alexandre Moors-directed film.
Blue Caprice debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by Sundance Selects on Wednesday for a low seven-figure minimum guarantee for North American and Latin American rights. Washington will also be seen in the upcoming They Die By Dawn and The Trials of Cate McCall with Nick Nolte and Kate Beckinsale. The actor is in the John Sayles-directed Go For Sister, which debuts at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
