NEW YORK — Gotham shingle Arrow Films has picked up world rights to “See Jane Run,” the directorial debut of screenwriter Sarah Thorp.

Exec produced by “Go” helmer Doug Liman, film stars Clea DuVall as a suicidal waitress who decides her life has a purpose after coming upon a gun discarded in a convenience store robbery. Kevin Corrigan also stars.

“Arrow has always been known as a cultivator of new American indie talent,” said Arrow prexy Dennis Friedland. “Sarah fits in perfectly with other young filmmakers who got their start at Arrow and later became established Hollywood stalwarts.”

Produced by Kevin Wendle, Nichole Shay LaLoggia, Eden Wurmfeld and Jeehun Hwang, “Jane” screened at the Slamdunk fest in January.

Thorp has previously penned a rock ‘n’ roll version of “Alice in Wonderland” for MTV Films and the feature script “Get Christie Love” for Universal/Jersey Films.

Arrow will release “Jane” in winter. Other pics on the slate for fall and winter are “Maelstrom,” “The Piano Player,” “Milk” and “Dog Run.”

Arrow veep of business and legal affairs John M. Cusimano negotiated the deal with Thorp’s manager, Robyn Meisinger.
