Genevieve Nnaji has signed a representation deal with United Talent Agency, UTA, the same agent used by Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.
Deadline reports that Genevieve has inked a deal with UTA for representation in film, TV, and production.
The agency also represents Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Channing Tatum, Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Kim Soo Hyun and Liv Tyler.
The move came on the heels of the acquisition of her directorial debut movie, Lionheart by Netflix. We believe this deal will see the talented actress break into Hollywood.
UTA is one of the biggest talent agencies in the world that represents many of the world’s most acclaimed figures in every current and emerging area of entertainment and media, including motion pictures, television, music, digital, broadcast news, books, theatre, video games, fine art and live entertainment.
In a report by Variety, Netflix announced that it has bought over the worldwide rights to Lion Heart on Friday, September 7, 2018.
LionHeart premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival with major cast that include Genevieve Nnaji, Peter Okoye, Nkem Owoh and Onyeka Onwenu in attendance.
Genevieve Nnaji appeared on CNN as a guest of Richard Quest on Tuesday, September 11, where she spoke on her Netflix acquired film, ‘Lionheart’.
Congrats Genevieve, we’re super proud of you.
