FilmNation (US) holds worldwide rights and will present the film at the Cannes market, and will co-finance with BBC Films with Origin Pictures’ (UK) David Thompson and Ed Rubin producing. The film will be shot in the UK later this year.

Batra said, “I am thrilled to adapt one of my favourite novels to screen and to work with a great team. Julian Barnes’ characters are an important part of my life and work, and I am very much looking forward to spend time with them, and with Jim Broadbent whom I have always admired. 

The Lunchbox was BAFTA nominated in the Best Film Not in the English Language category and for Best Film at the London Film Festival.
