IFC Midnight has bought North American rights to Eron Sheean’s thriller “Errors of the Human Body.”
Sheean wrote the screenplay with Shane Danielsen. Pic stars Karoline Herfurth, Tomas Lemarquis, Rik Mayall and Michael Eklund.
“Errors” was produced by Instinctive Film’s Darryn Welch and Cole Payne. The film played this summer at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Melbourne International Film Festival and Frightfest London and will play at the upcoming Fantastic Fest and Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival.
Story follows a geneticist who — following divorce from his wife and the loss of his son to a rare genetic mutation — relocates to Germany to work on a groundbreaking new project.
The deal was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman for Sundance Selects/IFC with Nate Bolotin at XYZFilms on behalf of the filmmakers.
