IFC Films has acquired the U.S. rights to Wrecked, Michael Greenspan’s directorial debut from Vancouver-based producer Independent Edge Films.

The Canadian psychological thriller, which stars Adrien Brody as a man without a memory attempting to escape a car wreck at the bottom of a cliff, was sold to IFC Films genre releasing arm, IFC Midnight, by Entertainment One Films International’s Charlotte Mickie as part of a deal unveiled at the American Film Market.

The Canadian indie flick, which also stars Caroline Dhavernas and Ryan Robbins, was written by Christopher Dodd and developed and produced by Kyle Mann.

Wrecked was shot in northern British Columbia with financial backing from Telefilm Canada, ahead of a world premiere at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

“Adrien Brody gives an incredibly intense performance here and Michael Greenspan is a remarkable new talent,” IFC Films president of entertainment Jonathan Sehring said in a statement.

Greenspan and Dodd are represented by Alex Lerner at Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment, and are currently at work on a comedy/drama The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green, based on a novel by Joshua Braff.

Wrecked was earlier sold to Alliance Films in Canada, Bac Films in France and to a host of other foreign territories.
