Actress/screenwriter Sarah Wayne Callies, who starred as Lori Grimes in AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, has signed with More/Medavoy Management Company. Callies will next be seen in New Line/Warner Bros.’ Into The Storm when it releases into theaters on August 8. She also just wrapped The Other Side Of The Door for Fox International, which was shot on location in India by director Johannes Roberts. The other role that has been a highlight of Callies career (so far) was a series regular as Dr. Sarah Tancredi in Fox’s television series Prison Break which she did for five years.
The actress is also a screenwriter and is currently penning an untitled script for producer Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Prods. Her first script, an adaptation of the Campbell Geeslin’s children’s book Elena’s Serenade, was optioned previously by Film Farm, a Toronto-based boutique film company that specializes in international co-productions. Callies is also repped by Resolution and law firm Sloane, Offer, Weber, and Dern.
This comes on the heels of More/Medavoy also signing both Jill Hennessy (The Good Wife, Crossing Jordan) and Chris Vance (Transporter, Prison Break) earlier this month. Company principals Erwin More and Brian Medavoy reunited in March to start up a management company again.
