The screenplay of the film is by Nick Payne and it is produced by David Thompson and Ed Rubin.
Talking about adapting the award winning book into a film Batra said,
“The Sense Of An Ending is just one of those books I’ve always carried with me. I have always loved the book since I read it back in 2011. I tracked it down a little bit, found out that it was already in development and forgot about it. About a year after that I think the producers had seen my last movie, The Lunchbox, and came to me with an offer to direct. I was very curious to see what the writer had done with it. I read the script and obviously fell in love with it.”
