Toronto: CBS Films Nabs ‘The Sense of an Ending’ With Jim Broadbent

CBS Films has nabbed U.S. distribution rights to “The Sense of an Ending,” a film adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning bestseller.

The deal proceeds the Toronto Film Festival, which begins on Thursday. In a statement, CBS Films president Terry Press praised the production as a “perfect storm of creative talent.”

Among those contributing to the talent tempest are Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent; Charlotte Rampling, currently attracting awards attention with “45 Years”; stage actress Harriet Walter; “Lovely and Amazing” actress Emily Mortimer; and “Downton Abbey’s” Michelle Dockery. Ritesh Batra (“The Lunchbox”) directs the picture from a screenplay by playwright Nick Payne (“Constellations”).

The film centers on a reclusive older man grappling with the legacy of his first love. FilmNation Entertainment, BBC Films and LipSync are financing the picture.

CBS Films executive vice president of acquisitions and co-productions Scott Shooman and executive vice president of business affairs Jack Bleck negotiated the deal on behalf of the studio, while Avy Eschenasy of Eschenasy Consulting and WME Global negotiated on behalf of FilmNation Entertainment.

Production is currently taking place in London.
