EXCLUSIVE: Veteran lit agent Rich Green has left CAA, and he has joined the new agency being launched by former ICM chief Jeff Berg. The well respected Green has been there nine years, and his last day was Friday. Among the clients he worked with are Grace Of Monaco‘s Arash Amel, Maleficent‘s Linda Woolverton, Rock Of Ages‘ Chris D’Arienzo, Mike LeSieur (the Black List script The Flamingo Thief which Will Ferrel will star in) and authors like Sliver Linings Playbook‘s Matthew Quick, The Corrections‘ Jonathan Franzen, Fight Club‘s Chuck Palahniuk, Snow Crash‘s Neal Stephenson, The Discovery of Witches‘ Deborah Harkness and Interview with the Vampire‘s Anne Rice. It is unclear which clients might join him, at this point, as he tries to bring them over and CAA attempts to keep them in the fold.
Green joined CAA after a long stint at UTA, where he worked closely brokering book to movie deals with Howie Sanders. I will tell you more when I know it.
