Adrien Brody’s Thriller ‘Backtrack’ Sells to Saban Films

Saban Films is in final negotiations for the U.S. rights to the Adrien Brody thriller “Backtrack,” following its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

It’s the second Tribeca title picked up by Saban, which is paying seven figures. The year-old distributor acquired North American rights to the Simon Pegg-Lake Bell romantic comedy “Man Up” earlier this week.

“Backtrack” also stars Sam Neill and Robin McLeavy; Michael Petroni directed from his own script. It follows a troubled psychotherapist, played by Brody, who is suffering from nightmares and eerie visions that lead him back to his remote hometown, where he is consumed with the need to solve a decades-old mystery.

“Backtrack” is produced by Jamie Hilton, Antonia Barnard and Petroni. Executive producers include Compton Ross, Phil Hunt and David Evans. The film was financed by Screen Australia with Head Gear Films and Metrol Technology in association with Screen NSW and Deluxe Australia.

Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban are negotiating the acquisition deal, which includes a theatrical commitment, on behalf of Saban Films with CAA and Bankside Films on behalf of the producers.
