Drafthouse Acquires 'Rubber' Director's Next, Surreal Sundance Entry 'Wrong'

Alamo Drafthouse distribution label Drafthouse Films has acquired North American rights to Quentin Dupieux’s surreal Sundance entry “Wrong.”

Described as an electronic musician-turned-director/writer/editor/cinematographer/composer, Dupieux also directed the 2010 Cannes short “Rubber,” (video below). “’Wrong’’s demented universe is a perfect fit for our brand of artfully unusual films,” says Drafthouse Films founder/CEO Tim League, “and Quentin proves once again that he is one of contemporary cinema’s true fearless visionaries who refuses to play by the rules.”

“Wrong” is about a Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick of “Reno 911”) and his search for his missing dog, helped by spiritual guide Master Chang (William Fichtner); they meet various characters he meets along the way, including “a promiscuous pizza delivery girl, a jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, and an eccentric pet detective” (Steve Little, “Eastbound And Down”). “I love dogs and I am fascinated by the relationship between people and dogs,” says Dupieux. “ I get along with dogs better than I do with people! Wrong is an homage to this special love between people and dogs.”

Drafthouse plans a limited theatrical and VOD release for 2013. While the album’s soundtrack will be available August 27 from Because Music, free downloads co-composed by Dupieux, AKA Mr. Oizo, and Tahiti Boy are here:
