By Indiewire | Indiewire September 8, 2007 at 8:20AM

ThinkFilm has acquired U.S. rights to Helen Hunt's "Then She Found Me," which debuted on Friday evening at the Toronto International Film Festival, with TVA Films taking Canadian rights after overnight negotiating. The actress' directorial debut -- produced by Killer Films -- stars Bette Midler, Colin Firth, and Matthew Broderick and was adapted by Hunt, Vic Levin and Alice Arlen from a novel by Elinor Lipman. International sales on the film are being shopped in Toronto by Odyssey Entertainment. Think's Mark Urman and Randy Manis closed the deal with CAA and Yves Dion negotiated for Equinoxe, according to an announcement today. The Hollywood Reporter offers additional background on the deal, in a story that pegs the pact at $2 - 3 million, combining U.S. rights to ThinkFilm and the Canadian rights deal. (Reps corrected a previous report that mistakenly indicated Canadian rights were nabbed by Equinoxe). [Eugene Hernandez]
