EXCLUSIVE: Angelina Jolie has just signed with United Talent Agency, which will represent her as a writer and director. She doesn’t have an agent for her acting work. The signing comes after she made her writing/directorial debut on a Bosnia-set feature that is in postproduction. That untitled film was financed and produced by GK Films. She clearly wants to do more in that area, and UTA becomes Jolie’s first agency representation as a filmmaker. She continues to be represented in all areas by longtime manager Geyer Kosinski and attorney Robert Offer.
“Angelina has a distinct and powerful creative voice, and having read her work and seen parts of the film she’s directing, we’re very certain that she’s entering a new and fruitful phase of her extraordinary career,” said UTA partner Rich Klubeck, who’s leading the team of agents representing Jolie’s filmmaking pursuits.
