IFC Midnight is acquiring U.S. rights to Adam MacDonald’s thriller “Backcountry,” two months after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Fella Films sold “Backcountry,” written and directed by MacDonald. Missy Peregrym, Jeff Roop, Eric Balfour and Nicholas Campbell star.

Thomas Michael produces and the film, executive produced by Jeff Roop, Michael Baker and Brandon Baker.

Peregrym portrays a busy executive with her sporadically employed boyfriend on a camping trip, where they have an unsettling encounter with a stranger wandering through the woods and take an impromptu detour that leaves them at the mercy of the wilderness and its ferocious inhabitants.

Cinetic Media negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers.
