Sony Pictures Classic has obtained the North America and Latin America rights to Anand Tucker's new drama of "And When Did You Last See Your Father?."
One more potential movie is about to emerge from Sony Pictures Classic. The studio has satisfyingly gained the North America and Latin America rights to dramatic feature "And When Did You Last See Your Father?." The picture, helmed by U.K director Anand Tucker, is a Number 9 Films production and has been developed as part of the U.K film Council Super-Slate initiative in association with FilmFour, Intandem Films, and the Irish Film Board.
In response to the collaboration, both Sony and Intandem have revealed their comments which reflect their satisfaction on this mutual cooperation.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with our old friends at Intandem and Number 9 Films on this picture and at long last to be working with Anand Tucker," Sony's co-presidents Michael Barker, Tom Bernard, and EVP, Acquisitions and Production, Dylan Leiner, have stated.
Intandem CEO Gary Smith and Directors of Sales and Marketing Andrew Brown and Billy Hurman further remarked: "…we can't think of a better home for this picture than with our friends at Sony Pictures Classics who we know will give it the love and respect that this great British film deserves."
Based on the award-winning memoir by British author Blake Morrison, "Your Father" is a gripping father-son love story told through flashbacks by the son. Colin Firth is starring as Blake Morrison and Jim Broadbent as his father, Arthur Morrison. David Nicholls is penning the script with Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen producing. Production has been slated to begin in October this year.
