Following a Monday night screening of Tom Ford's A Single Man at the Toronto Film Festival, the picture was picked up by Bob and Harvey Weinstein:
"Deal was made after an all-night negotiating session between
distributors and Ford's CAA agents following a Monday evening premiere
here heavily attended by indie distribs. At the fete, there was hope in the air that "Single" might break the
dealmaking logjam and prod distributors to begin locking in
distribution deals for a slew of available films with strong casts that
are unspooling at the fest. There had been no major showdown over a pic
until Ford's debut arrived Monday…'Though I've gone through this with my collections in the past, this
is so much more personal, and much more a reflection of my soul,' said
fashion designer-turned-director Ford, who optioned the novel three
years ago and shot the film in just 21 days. 'I have always
admired Harvey's great passion for film,' Ford said. 'Harvey and I have
talked about a collaboration for years, in fact, since our first
meeting more than 10 years ago.'"
