The Sixth Sense director M NIGHT SHYAMALAN has fired his agents at United Talent Agency after nearly a decade and signed up with Creative Artists Agency.
The move comes after his latest film, LADY IN THE WATER, performed poorly at the box office, grossing only $42 million (GBP23 million).
Lady In The Water marked the end to Shyamalan's long relationship with Disney, which began in 1997 when the studio took a chance on the then-unknown filmmaker and acquired The Sixth Sense.
He followed with the films UNBREAKABLE, SIGNS and The Village.
The writer-director is the second big name to leave UTA for CAA - JIM CARREY left earlier this year (06) after 15 years with the agency.
