Creation Sells


Newmarket Films today announced a deal to acquire Creation, the utterly underwhelming Charles Darwin biopic that opened this year's Toronto International Film Festival. It's the latest pick-up in a relatively busy post-fest week that saw Get Low, I Am Love and Lebanon find buyers as well. Newmarket has yet to announce a release date, but expect a concentrated protest against the movie at that time -- and that's just for Paul Bettany's lead performance. Surely the evolution subplot will raise some hackles as well. [indieWIRE]
