Robert De Niro, CAA part company


Robert De Niro has parted ways with CAA, his longtime agency.

in the midst of what has become a season of revolving doors at Hollywood's major talent agencies, it was not immediately clear where the actor-producer is headed. Although speculation focused on Endeavor, by Wednesday night, that agency could not confirm that De Niro had become a client.

Long established as a dramatic actor, De Niro enjoyed some of the biggest hits of his career since taking on broad, comic roles in such movies as "Analyze This," "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers" during the past decade.

His most recent film is the inside-Hollywood comedy "What Just Happened?" which premiered in January to mixed reactions at the Sundance Film Festival. The project, packaged by CAA and repped by Cinetic, still is searching for a distributor.

De Niro will next be seen in Jon Avnet's crime drama "Righteous Kill," which Overture is to release in September, and has been developing the mob tale "Frankie Machine" at Paramount.

A six-time Academy Award nominee, De Niro won a best supporting actor Oscar in 1975 for "The Godfather: Part II" and a best actor Oscar in 1981 for "Raging Bull."
