Drafthouse Films has acquired North American rights to Quentin Dupieux’s comedy “Wrong.”
The film, which made its world premiere in January at Sundance, centers on a man’s frantic search for his kidnapped dog and the strange characters he encounters along the way.
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.
