There were no further details at the time of writing.
The development comes as Alex Walton’s international sales team at Endeavor Content Film Group – the combined film sales and advisory entity led by Walton and Alexis Garcia – prepares to engage with buyers in the virtual marketplace of Cannes which will take place from June 21 to 25.
Earlier this year, WME signed the WGA franchise agreement which aims, among other things, to avoid conflicts of interest by stipulating that agencies cannot own more than 20% of an affiliated production entity.
