Corsan World Sales represents all international rights and CAA and Paradigm co-represent the domestic rights.
Paul Breuls, CEO of Corsan said: “I am delighted to join forces with one of the world’s most creative and exciting filmmakers, Paul Haggis. Corsan has taken pride in providing great filmmakers with the platform to create artistic yet highly commercial films. Third Person was exactly the type of material the we gravitate towards and the chance to work with Paul and Liam Neeson was an opportunity we aggressively pursued.”
Paul Haggis, writer/director stated: “Third Person is a script where life can change on the turn of the page. It is a project that Liam and I identified to work on together and then finding the right financier became the key that we were looking for to unlock what we hope is a great film. Sitting with Paul and seeing that he shared our vision made going forward with Corsan the obvious choice.”
Pascal Borno, president of Corsan World Sales added: “Over the past two years we have really been able to plant our flag in the ground by bringing films to buyers with top directors and stars that will succeed in the international marketplace. Our focus has been on quality rather than quantity and the result speaks for itself.”
