I’m told that maverick film director Lasse Hallstrom left CAA and returned yesterday to United Talent and agents there Tracy Jacobs, Shana Eddy, Jeremy Zimmer. But Hallstrom’s CAA motion picture lit agent, Spencer Baumgarten, doesn’t know it yet. I called over to 2000 Avenue Of The Stars, and his office thinks he still reps the helmer. (Oops!) Hallstrom directed Richard Gere in the new and well-reviewed Miramax pic about Howard Hughes’ bogus biographer Clifford Irving, The Hoax.
