IFC Films enters ‘Void’

Company nabs rights to Cannes pic

IFC Films has picked up U.S. rights to Gaspar Noe’s Cannes competition pic “Enter the Void.”

The film from Argentine-French auteur Noe, who is best known his controversial “Irreversible, ” will have its U.S. preem at Sundance on Friday.

“Enter” stars Nathaniel Brown, Paz de la Huerta and Cyril Roy. The dreamlike, Tokyo-set pic concerns a drug-dealing teen who, after he’s killed, reappears as a ghost to watch over his sister. IFC will bow the film simultaneously in theaters and on VOD this year.

IFC’s Arianna Bocco negotiated the pact with Wild Bunch’s Carole Baraton.

Paris-based, Buenos Aires-born Noe’s “Irreversible” (2002), about a brutal rape and revenge unfolding in reverse chronology, starred Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel. His first film was 1998’s “I Stand Alone,” based on his own 1991 short “Carne.”
