MRC Poaches Tory Metzger From CAA

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Metzger, one of the top motion picture agents at CAA, is leaving to head up the film division at Media Rights Capital, the leading independent film, television and digital studio and financing arm. At CAA, Metzger represented Tom Cruise, Ang Lee, Cameron Crowe, Spike Jonze, Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher, Peter Hedges, Callie Khouri, Nicole Holofcener, James Shamus, John Wells, Danny DeVito. Metzger began her career in Hollywood as a development executive and then joined United Talent Agency for two years before moving to CAA in 1992. Needless to say, there’s now a feeding frenzy among rival tenpercenteries for her clients, but CAA does already have teams in place. MRC is owned by advertising agency WPP, AT&T, Goldman Sachs and Endeavor agency, one of CAA’s strongest rivals. Though Endeavor has only a small ownership position, it’s perceived to have big ties to MRC, whose co-CEO Modi Wiczyk is a former Endeavor agent.
