IFC Midnight buys ‘Incident’

IFC Midnight is acquiring North American rights to Alexandre Courtes’ thriller “The Incident.”

Deal was announced Wednesday at the Toronto Film Festival. “The Incident” premiered Monday in the Midnight Madness lineup.

The film, with a screenplay by Jerome Fansten and S. Craig Zahler, stars Rupert Evans, Kenny Doughty, Joseph Kennedy, Dave Legeno, Marcus Garvey and Richard Brake.

Producers are Wassim Beji, Yannick Bollor and Emilie Chatel. Roy Lee and Doug Davison exec produced.

Story centers on three band members struggling to record their first album and performing small gigs between shifts cooking for the inmates of the high-security asylum where they all work. This banal routine is interrupted when a storm knocks out the power in the hospital, trapping the three young men in the kitchen and disabling the security systems that keep them safe from the lunatics.

The deal was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman, manager of acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with Paradigm and Charlotte Boucon, sales manager at SND M6, on behalf of the filmmakers.

IFC Midnight is a sister division to IFC Films and Sundance Selects and is owned and operated by AMC Networks.
