“Conservation In Space”

By Raymond Benson

When Silent Running was released in 1972 as a somewhat “experimental” venture from Universal Pictures, a studio that had decided to give a handful of new filmmakers a million dollars each to make whatever they wanted, it flew under the radar of most folks who weren’t into science fiction. After all, it was a tough challenge to come up with anything to compete with 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), which was still playing on second and third runs around the world. Silent Running did okay at the box office, but it wasn’t a runaway hit.

Agent Stuart Manashil Pleads Guilty to Defrauding CAA

  • Variety
Stuart Manashil, a former literary agent at Wme, is awaiting sentencing in New York federal court on a charge of defrauding CAA while he was an agent there from 2011 through 2014.

Manashil, 43, pleaded guilty to a count of wire fraud on March 30. He left CAA for Wme in 2014, and left Wme in 2017 to become a manager.

“During the time period stated in the information, I agreed with others in California to knowingly divert funds to them that were rightfully due to my employer,” Manashil told Judge Barbara Moses. “In furtherance of this activity, fraudulent representations and documents were utilized, as well as emails among myself and other participants.”

Manashil’s management clients include Fede Alvarez, director of the forthcoming “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”; actor James Van Der Beek; director Olivier Assayas; and Brad Furman, director of the Johnny Depp film “City of Lies,” on which Manashil is credited as a producer.
