IFC Midnight, the genre label of IFC Films, has nabbed domestic rights to Adrien Brody starrer "Wrecked."
Kyle Mann ("Capote," "Push") developed, produced and financed the
psychological thriller through his newly formed shingle Independent
Edge. Telefilm Canada also backed the film.
Brody takes an exec producer's role on the pic, which also stars
Caroline Dhavernas ("Breach," "Hollywoodland") and Ryan Robbins
("Walking Tall," "Passengers").
Pic marks the directorial debut of Michael Greenspan, while Christopher Dodd penned the script.
Deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco of IFC Films, Ben Weiss of
Paradigm and Charlotte Mickie from eOne Films International, which is
selling the pic.
Pic, which preemed at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival in October,
sees Brody's character wake up in a car-wreck at the bottom of a steep
cliff, having no memory of who he is or how he got there, leaving him
forced to discover his true identity.
IFC Films will release the pic via IFC Midnight in spring 2011.
Pic has already sold to a number of territories including Canada
(Alliance Films), France (Bac Films), Korea (Korea Issue), Poland
(Hagi), Portugal (VC Multimedia), Greece (Hollywood), India (Picture
Works), former Yugoslavia (Karantanija), Israel (United King), Taiwan
(Catchplay), and Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore and Pakistan (Pt Parkit).
Greenspan and Dodd are repped by Kaplan/Perrone Ent.
