Director Broomfield joins ICM


Controversial documentary director Nick Broomfield, who unveiled his Iraq War narrative drama "Battle for Haditha" at the recent Toronto fest, has signed with ICM.

Broomfield gained notoriety with such investigative docus as "Kurt & Courtney," "Biggie & Tupac" and two features on serial killer Aileen Wuornos that helped inspire the feature "Monster." His docus often take a personal approach, showing him tracking down his subjects and often coming to inflammatory conclusions.

"Haditha" re-creates the 2005 massacre of 24 Iraqi civilians, allegedly at the hands of U.S. Marines. It won Broomfield best director honors at last month's San Sebastian International Film Festival. ICM is repping the FilmFour feature's North American distribution rights.

The Los Angeles and London-based Broomfield is repped by U.K.-based Charles Finch and attorney Shani Hinton.

Broomfield was repped by WMA.
