IT'S A SIGN: ICM Picks Up Josh and Ben Safdie (Exclusive)

The sibling filmmakers made "Daddy Longlegs," which has just been nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

ICM has signed filmmaker brothers Josh and Ben Safdie, whose Daddy Longlegs was nominated last week for an Independent Spirit Award.

The Safdies wrote and directed the family drama, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was released on the Sundance Selects platform. The film has recently earned lead actor Ronald Bronstein a Gotham Award for breakthrough performance and a Spirit nom for best male lead.

The siblings are also the writer-directors of a number of shorts.
