Drafthouse acquires ‘Wrong’

Film unit nabs North American rights to Quentin Dupieux's comedy

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.
