Emile Hirsch’s Supernatural Thriller ‘Autopsy of Jane Doe’ Bought by IFC

IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to Emile Hirsch’s supernatural thriller “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” from IM Global.

Andre Ovredal directed from a screenplay by Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing. Brian Cox and Ophelia Lovibond also star in the film.

“Autopsy of Jane Doe” marked Hirsch’s first acting job after being charged with assault for getting into an altercation with a Paramount exec during last year’s Sundance Film Festival. He pleaded guilty in August to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to spend 15 days in jail, pay a $4,750 fine and perform 50 hours of community service.

“Autopsy of Jane Doe” was produced by Fred Berger, Eric Garcia, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken of 42, and was executive produced by IM Global Founder/CEO Stuart Ford, Matt Jackson and Steven Squillante.

Hirsch and Cox portray coroners — a father and son — who receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. As they attempt to identify the beautiful young “Jane Doe,” they discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets.

The deal for the film was negotiated by WME Global with Ford and Deborah Zipser at IM Global on behalf of the filmmakers with Arianna Bocco and Betsy Rodgers for Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
