2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Quentin Dupieux’s Wrong Cops

Quentin Dupieux Wrong Cops

From the French filmmaker who launched his career with Rubber and hit Sundance’s World Dramatic Comp with Wrong the following year, his next film a project told in seven parts actually debuted volume I in Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight sidebar. So I naturally think that Wrong Cops, a freakshow starring Marilyn Manson, Mark Burnham, Grace Zabriskie, Eric Judor and a Steve Little – Sundance would not be complete without him showing up.

Gist: This is a comedy about “deranged” cops.

Production Co./Producers: Realitism Films’s Grégory Bernard and Diane Jassem

Prediction: Park City at Midnight

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
