Constantin Film and Canyon Creek Films to produce film adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s bestseller Where Rainbows End (the writer of P.S. I Love You)

Where Rainbows End is about Rosie & Alex, two childhood best friends who grow up together watching each other muddle through tempestuous relationships, not realizing what fate has in store for them. An international bestseller,

Where Rainbows End was also the 2005 recipient of the Corine International Book Award. Ahern’s first novel, P.S. I Love You, was also an international bestseller and hit film.

Producer Simon Brooks brought the project to Constantin Film. Best known for executive producing White Noise, Brooks will be producing under his Canyon Creek Films banner with Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer. Kulzer most recently produced Resident Evil: Afterlife and is currently in production on the highly anticipated 3D reboot of The Three Musketeers, due out next year.

Before embarking on her writing career, Cecelia Ahern completed a Degree in Journalism and Media Communications. At twenty-one, she wrote her first novel PS, I Love You, which was sold to over forty countries.

The film of the same title, directed by Richard LaGravenese and produced by Wendy Finerman, became a major motion picture starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.

PS, I Love You was one of the biggest-selling debut novels of 2004, reaching number 1 in Ireland and in the UK Sunday Times bestseller list. It was also a bestseller throughout Europe and the USA, staying on the best-seller list in Germany for over 52 weeks.

That same year, in November 2004, her second book Where Rainbows End (Love, Rosie/Rosie Dunne in the US) also reached number 1 in Ireland and the UK, remaining at the top of the Irish bestsellers list for 12 weeks and again a bestseller internationally.
