Caren Bohrman, a literary agent who founded The Bohrman Agency and brokered screenwriter deals for films such as The Fugitive and Warlock, passed away Sunday after a long battle with cancer, her sister Catharine tells FishbowlLA. She was 56. Bohrman was involved in nearly 200 screenplays and pilots over the course of her nearly 30-year career. Her produced films included Crazy/Beautiful, Buckaroo Banzai, The United States Of Leland and Employee Of The Month. She also secured the U.S. theatrical release of the Salvador Carrasco-directed and Plácido Domingo-produced The Other Conquest, about neo-colonialism from an Aztec point of view. More recently she had worked on Middleton with Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga and Tom Skerritt; on the Maria Bello/Michael Sheen film Beautiful Boy; and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum‘s The Vow. Before her death, she had more than a dozen projects in various stages of development. Bohrman also worked with writer-director Bryan Michael Stoller on a big-screen adaptation of Jennings Michael Burch‘s book They Cage The Animals, which was to be Michael Jackson‘s directorial debut. Bohrman’s brother David is president of Current TV and their late father Stan Bohrman was a long-time television newsman.
