EXCLUSIVE: WME has just signed Ric Roman Waugh, the stuntman-turned-director who just wrapped Snitch with Dwayne Johnson. Waugh, a stuntman for two decades before he made his directing debut with Felon, had been a client of ICM Partners’ Nicole Clemens and was in play when she left recently to become a senior development executive at FX. Waugh met with the major agencies, but I’m sure it helped having Johnson as a booster after they made Snich together. Waugh, who is attached to helm a movie about daredevil Evel Knievel, continues to be repped by Management 360.
