Daniel Manwaring Promoted to Head of CAA China's Motion Pictures Group (Exclusive)
He replaces Jonah Greenberg, who will become a producer and CAA client.
CAA has promoted Daniel Manwaring to head of the agency’s motion pictures group in China, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
He replaces Jonah Greenberg, who is launching production company Salty Pictures, which will focus on Chinese-language content and will be represented by CAA’s Media Finance team. Greenberg was a producer at Beijing-based Ming Productions before he joined CAA in 2005.
Manwaring, who joined the agency in 2012, will be based in CAA’s Beijing office. He previously had been splitting his time between there and the company’s Los Angeles headquarters, working closely with Media Finance and serving as a liaison to the Chinese film market.
CAA’s Beijing office, established in 2005 to make it the first U.S. agency with a full-time presence in China, represents A-list talent including Zhang Yimou, Jackie Chan, Fan Bingbing, Donnie Yen and Lin Chi-ling. CAA has packaged, sold or raised financing for more than 75 Chinese-language features and directed more than half a million dollars of Chinese capital into English-language content.
