Pressman Corp. Takes Rights to “Infinity”

Pressman Corp. Takes Rights to "Infinity"

Edward R. Pressman Film Corp. announced Wednesday that the company has acquired the motion picture rights to “The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan“, Robert Kanigel‘s 1991 biography of Srinavasa Ramanujan Iyengar. The biography chronicles the life of the self-taught mathematical prodigy, who left the slums of Madras for the courts of Cambridge during World War I. Sondervan first brought the project to Pressman in late 2003 when working at ContentFilm, but Pressman and Sondervan determined the movie could not be made at the company because its “epic” nature was beyond the company’s financial scope, according to a company release. Plans call for production to begin on the project in India and the UK this fall. [Brian Brooks]
