Constantin and Canyon Creek opt for best-sellers
German production company Constantin has bought the rights to successful young Irish writer Cecelia Ahern’s second novel, Where Rainbows End (2004).
At 29, the daughter of the former Irish prime minister has written best-selling novels, co-produced a US series and been a member of pop group Shimma. Her debut novel, P.S. I Love You (2004) was made into a 2007 film by US director Richard LaGravenese, starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.
Where Rainbows End looks at the difficult love between a man and woman who have known each other since childhood but were for a long time separated by an ocean. The book was brought to Constantin’s attention by Simon Brooks of London-based Canyon Creek Films, who is co-producing the film with Constantin’s Robert Kulzer. Brooks has also bought the rights to Ahern’s third novel, If You Could See Me Now (2005).
