In December, it was reported that upstart management-brand development company Range Media Partners had added Chris Hemsworth to its roster for the actor’s reunion with his former CAA agent, Range co-founder Jack Wigham. But Hemsworth’s tenure with the range has proved to be short-lived.
According to a source, Hemsworth had planned to handle range branding opportunities but has now excluded the range – “objectively or not” – because the CAA was handling the excesses by the new company on matters it should handle. Another source, however, counters that Hemsworth’s decision came when he took steps to consolidate his business under one roof.
Several sources confirm that Hemsworth and Whigham remain on great terms. Hemsworth, who runs his Centre Workout app, is shooting the next installment in director Marika’s Cinematic Universe franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder.
Amidst the tectonic changes in the industry during the COVID-19 epidemic, which resulted in several high-profile defections in the agency landscape, Range emerged as a powerhouse player. It was founded when a collective including Dave Bugliari, McKenzie Condon Russo, Rich Cook, Michael Cooper, Susie Fox, Sandra Kang, Rachel Kropha, Chelsea McKinney, Peter Michel, Lucinda Moorehead, Mick Sullivan, Jack Whigham, and Byron Wetzel Declined.
