D Films buys Toronto opener
Canadian indie acquires local rights to 'Creation'TORONTO -- Canadian indie distributor D Films on Tuesday said it acquired the local rights to Jon Amiel's "Creation" from HanWay Films ahead of the Charles Darwin romancer opening the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday night.
Toronto-based D Films picked up all rights to the Paul Bettany/Jennifer Connelly starrer, which is the Canadian distributor's first acquisition since opening its doors last month.
The deal was brokered by president Jim Sherry and vp acquisitions Tony Cianciotta for D Films and Tim Haslam, CEO of London-based HanWay Films.
"Creation" still awaits an American suitor as HanWay shops the British pic in Toronto.
