IFC Midnight goes ‘Antiviral’

Brandon Cronenberg pic debuted at Cannes

IFC Midnight has snapped up U.S. rights to Brandon Cronenbreg’s “Antiviral” on the heels of its world premiere in the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard section.

It’s the debut feature for Cronenberg, son of David Cronenberg. He also penned the screenplay. “Antiviral” stars Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Douglas Smith and Malcolm McDowell.

Niv Fichman of RhombusMedia is the producer. Pic was produced by Rhombus Media with the participation of Telefilm Canada and the “Antiviral” will be released in Canada by Alliance Films and in the U.K. by its subsidiary Momentum Pictures.

Pic follows an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to rabid fans who wish to partake in the ultimate form of communion.

The U.S. deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Gregory Chambet of TF1 Intl. on behalf of the filmmakers.
