ThinkFilm nabs ‘She Found Me’

Helen Hunt's directorial debut sold in Toronto

Helen Hunt’s directorial debut, “Then She Found Me,” sold to ThinkFilm in the first high-profile bidding action of the Toronto Film Festival.

Insiders put the price for domestic rights at around $2 million, with an additional $1 million coming from Canadian distrib TVA Films. The Weinstein Co. and Lionsgate were also in the running.

It is expected to be one of Think’s most aggressive releases to date.

The pact was firmed up overnight Friday, with a dinner hosted by CAA, which reps Hunt and the film, seeing drop-ins by bidders including Harvey Weinstein.

“Then She Found Me,” based on a popular novel by Elinor Lipman, stars Hunt, Bette Midler and Colin Firth.
