Avi Federgreen’s IndieCan Entertainment has picked up the Canadian and U.S. distribution rights to Patterson’s Wager, the debut feature from O. Corbin Saleken.

Starring Fred Ewanuick (Corner Gas, Dan for Mayor) the rom-com tells the story of a man who discovers he can see two minutes into the future. Co-producing alongside director Saleken – who also penned the screenplay– is Alex Zahara, who also acts in the film. Directors of photography are Nelson Talbot and Graham Talbot.

Chelah Horsdal (Hell on Wheels, When Calls the Heart), Alex Zahara (Once Upon a Time, Horns), Michelle Creber (CBC’s Strange Empire), Anne Openshaw (The Grey) and Garry Chalk (AMC’s The Killing, Tomorrowland) also star alongside Ewanuik.

Following a run on the festival circuit, the film is scheduled to make it to Canadian and U.S. theatres in the early part of 2016.

Earlier this year, Patterson’s Wager won the Best Independent Feature Narrative prize at the Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival and the Best Foreign Feature prize at Hawaii’s Big Island Film Festival.
