Think to don Izzard doc

Project to be previewed in September

NEW YORK — Indie banner ThinkFilm has acquired all North American rights to an untitled in-the-works documentary about cross-dressing U.K. funnyman Eddie Izzard.

Sarah Townsend is helming and producing the pic; Joni Sighvatsson and Nick Hirschkorn are exec producers.

Move comes after ThinkFilm’s “Murderball” — the first docu the company backed financially — became a Sundance sensation last month.

Izzard pic has been in production for three years. A promo reel was screened at Cannes last year.

Pact was brokered by ThinkFilm’s Randy Manis with Izzard and Sighvatsson.

Creative team hopes to unveil the project in Toronto in September, with Izzard performing a live show.
