RMG client Madeleine Roux’s latest novel has arrived to great acclaim. House of Furies is a breathtakingly imaginative new young adult novel from the author behind the beloved Asylum series.
We are very proud to share that The House With A Clock In Its Walls by John Bellairs, whose work is represented by RMG, will soon be brought to the big screen courtesy of Amblin Entertainment and Mythology Entertainment. Eli Roth has been tapped to direct the film with Jack Black attached to star.
We are very excited to share that The Silence, written by Rain client and best-selling author Tim Lebbon, will be adapted into a feature film starring Kiernan Shipka and Stanley Tucci. The film will be directed by John Leonetti, the lauded filmmaker behind 2014’s horror-thriller Annabelle, and shepherded by legendary producers Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, and Robert Kulzer.
Lefitz, who worked in CAA’s TV department for the past 13 years, joins Rain as a partner working with current RMG partners Jonathan Baruch, Anne Damato and Rob Wolken.
At CAA, Lefitz repped writers and directors including Blue Bloods’ David Barrett and Siobhan Byrne O’Connor, Big Bang Theory’s Eric Kaplan, Mike Uppendahl (Fargo, American Horror Story), Steven Kane (The Last Ship), Elizabeth Davis Beall (Scorpion), Rick Cleveland (Man in the High Castle), John Polson (Elementary), Nick Copus (Salem) and Trey Callaway (Rush Hour).
“I’m incredibly proud of the time I’ve spent as an agent,” said Lefitz. “My colleagues at CAA have been so supportive of me and together we’ve done inspired work on behalf of our talented artists. However, after the birth of my daughter last year, I realized that I wanted to make a change and focus strictly on my client business. Management in the literary space is growing quickly and I’ve been incredibly impressed with RMG and how they’ve approached their business with a client-first focus. They were a natural fit for me and my clients and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my career.”
