Management/production firm Inspire Entertainment is expanding with the addition of manager Ali Forman to the company.
Forman will be working closely with Inspire Entertainment partner Jason Spire on the company’s roster of existing clients, as well as a select group of clients she will be bringing over from Impression Entertainment.
“I am thrilled to have Ali join the company. Working with a like-minded, hard-working dear friend is a dream,” said Spire.
Inspire Entertainment has quickly become one of the “go-to” boutique management/production companies in the business, having guided the careers of Oscar Isaac (“A Most Violent Year”), Anthony Mackie (“Captain America: Winter Soldier”), Benjamin Walker (“The Choice”), Lela Loren (“Power”), Jessica McNamee (“Sirens”), Rutina Wesley (“True Blood”) and Winter Ave Zoli (“Sons of Anarchy”), among many others.
On the production side, Inspire is currently developing the Black List script “Make a Wish” for Paramount Pictures, the Jesse Owens biopic “Master Race” and the indie picture “A Girl and a Gun.” The company served as executive producer on the Atlas Independent feature “Mojave,” starring Oscar Isaac and Garret Hedlund.
Forman began her management career nearly two years ago at Impression Entertainment, where she worked with clients Ana de Armas (“Knock Knock”), Tyler Blackburn (“Pretty Little Liars”), Sosie Bacon (“The Magicians”), Katie Nehra (“Mr. Right”) and Marisol Nichols (“GCB”), among others. Prior to that, Forman was the Special Projects Editor for InStyle Magazine where she oversaw the core of the magazine’s events, built strategic partnerships and was the liaison to the entertainment community.
Beginning her career in public relations, Forman worked mostly on independent films, which later translated into production. In 2003 she co-produced James Cox’s independent film “Wonderland,” which was based on the true story of LA’s Wonderland Ave. murders in 1981. The film starred Kate Bosworth, Val Kilmer, Josh Lucas and Dylan McDermott. The following year she co-produced “Happy Endings,” which starred Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lisa Kudrow, Steve Coogan, Laura Dern and Jason Ritter.
