Jackie Chan Leaves CAA For Morris, And Paul Thomas Anderson Lands There, Too


I’m told Jackie Chan fired CAA on the day his new movie The Forbidden Kingdom opened #1 last Friday. Today he landed with the William Morris Agency’s Phillip Button. As for the There Will Be Blood director, Paul Thomas Anderson left Endeavor yesterday and landed tonight at WMA with Mike Simpson and John Fogelman.

Paul Thomas Anderson Exits Endeavor; Agency Also Loses John C Reilly To CAA

By | Wednesday April 23, 2008 @ 4:02pm PDT


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.
