Quvenzhané Wallis Signs With ICM Partners

It’s been announced that one of the top talent agencies in the country, ICM Partners, has signed Quvenzhane Wallis.

As I noted in my July profile, the accolades have been virtually non-stop since the film she stars in, Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts Of The Southern Wild, bowed at the Sundance Film Festival in January, this year.
