William Monahan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Departed, has signed with management firm Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar. Sugar joins WME’s Chris Donnelly and attorney David Fox on Monahan’s rep team. Monahan is in post-production on London Boulevard, making his directing debut on a script he wrote, with Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley starring for GK Films. He’s also adapted the John Grisham novel The Associate, and The Falcon’s Tale, for Paramount, but it seems clear he wants to continue to make directing a priority. Sugar’s filmmaker list includes Steven Soderbergh, Spider-Man’s Marc Webb, Tron Legacy’s Joe Kosinski and Wolverine helmer Gavin Hood.
