We are thrilled to announce that film rights to The End We Start From by Megan Hunter have been acquired by Benedict Cumberbatch’s production company, SunnyMarch, and Hera Pictures. The End We Start From film will be produced by Adam Ackland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sophie Hunter and Liza Marshall.
Benedict Cumberbatch, SunnyMarch co-founder and Sherlock actor, says: “The End We Start From is a stunning tale of motherhood. Megan has crafted a striking and frighteningly real story of a family fighting for survival that will make everyone stop and think about what kind of planet we are leaving behind for our children. We’re beyond thrilled to be bringing this story to life.”
Liza Marshall, Hera Pictures founder, says: “This exquisite piece of writing is profoundly moving. It captures the deep love between a mother and child while forcing us all to consider what the world could become if climate change destabilised everything we take for granted. Megan has written something very special and unique and we’re excited and honoured to have the opportunity to make it into a film.”
