Toronto distributor launched two weeks ago

TORONTO — D Films, a Toronto boutique distrib that hung its shingle two weeks ago, has nabbed all Canuck rights to Toronto festival opener “Creation,” it was announced Tuesday.

Based on the book “Annie’s Box” by Darwin’s great-great-grandson Randal Keynes, and scripted by John Collee, “Creation” is helmed by Jon Amiel and was co-developed by producer Jeremy Thomas’ Recorded Picture Company with BBC Films and the U.K. Film Council.

The deal was negotiated by D Films’ president Jim Sherry and acquisitions vice-president Tony Cianciotta, and Tim Haslam, CEO of U.K. sales company HanWay Films.
