Morgan among UTA's subjects


Peter Morgan has signed for representation with UTA. The Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning scribe of "The Queen" was repped by ICM.

Morgan, who also won a BAFTA for "The Last King of Scotland," is writing a sequel to "The Queen," while the adaptation of his play "Frost/Nixon" is being directed by Ron Howard for Imagine/Working Title and Universal.

The writer also just concluded work on "State of Play" for Universal and Working Title and penned "The Other Boleyn Girl," an upcoming release from Sony. Fox 2000 is in negotiations to turn his TV series "The Jury" into a film to be written by Beau Willimon and directed by Marc Forster. Morgan also is repped by U.K. agent Greg Hunt and attorney Alan Hergott.
