According to The Hollywood Reporter, ThinkFilm has acquired all North American rights to the in-the-works, as-yet-untitled documentary by and about comedian Eddie Izzard.

Sarah Townsend is directing.

The film, which has been in production for about three years, will combine performance footage, interviews with friends, family and fans, and extensive material documenting the life, both onstage and off, of the comedian. Izzard is known for his one-man shows, and his 1998 performance, "Dress to Kill," which aired on HBO, earned him Emmys for both writing and performing in the comedy special category.
