CAA has signed Marlon Wayans. Though Wayans spent the last six years at WME, the move amounts to a homecoming. Wayans had been a longtime client at CAA along with his brothers Keenen and Shawn, until they left as a group and headed to WMA. Keenen has since moved to UTA, which helped set up his next directorial effort, It Takes A Village. Shawn doesn’t have an agent, though ICM books him for stand up comedy work.
Marlon Wayans is expected to reprise his role in a sequel to Paramount’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. His big opportunity, though, comes when he plays Richard Pryror in Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said? That film is set up at Sony Pictures Entertainment and will start next year, after the film’s writer/director Bill Condon completes the final two installments of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Wayans continues with longtime manager Lisa Blum at The Collective, his attorney is Kevin Yorn and he continues to work closely with Rick Alvarez at Wayans Bros Entertainment.
