While "Fahrenheit 9/11" continues to break all records as the
hottest documentary ever. Its producer, Jim Czarnecki, has joined Dattner Dispoto and Associates (DDA) for representation by its newest division managed by Richard Caleel. Longtime collaborator of Michael Moore, Czarnecki's credits have already earned him Oscar and Emmy awards, the Palm d'Or, and now a mind-blowing $21.6 million weekend gross for "9/11", a record-breaking opening for a documentary.
"With his background working with directors such as Phil Joanou, Neil LaBute and the Scotts (Ridley and Tony brothers of commercial film fame)," says Richard Caleel, "we'll be building on Jim's timely, artistic and thought-provoking work."
DDA, known for years for its representation of award-winning cinematographers, expanded this year to take on selected producers for representation in all areas.
Currently the agency's producer clients include:
Mark Allan (The Ninth Gate, The Mambo Kings), Kimberly A. Dickens (Carnivale, The Twilight Zone), Andrew Golov (The Punisher, Stir of Echoes), Paul Hellerman (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs), Michael McDonnell (The Usual Suspects, Urban Legend), Rick Nathanson (A Sound Of Thunder, Spartan).
