Film unit nabs North American rights to Quentin Dupieux's comedy

Drafthouse plans a limited theatrical and VOD release for 2013. “Wrong” stars Jack Plotnick as man who wakes up one morning to find that his beloved dog Paul has vanished and embarks on a spiritual journey guided by a guru — played by William Fichtner — to metaphysically reconnect with his pet. The deal was negotiated by James Shapiro and Chris Perez on behalf of Drafthouse Films and producer Gregory Bernard and Michael Donaldson of Donaldson & Callif on behalf of Rubber Films and Realitism Films.
