Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the North American and Eastern European rights to director Ramin Bahrani’s At Any Price.  Dennis Quaid stars as an ambitious farmer who is a father to a rebellious son (Zac Efron) with aspirations of race car driving.  An investigation into the family business brings the pair together in order to preserve their livlihood.

In other acquisition news, Drafthouse Films has picked up North American rights to Wrong, from Quentin Dupieux (Rubber). The picture centers on Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick), a man embarking on a metaphysical journey to find his lost dog, while encountering strange characters along the way.  Hit the jump for more on both projects.

at-any-price-zac-efronAt Any Price, written by Bahrani and Hallie Elizabeth Newton, also stars Kim Dickens and Heather Graham.  Check out the synopsis for At Any Price below:

Set in the competitive world of modern agriculture, ambitious Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) wants his rebellious son Dean (Zac Efron) to help expand his family’s farming empire. However, Dean has his sights set on becoming a professional race car driver. When a high-stakes investigation into their business is exposed, father and son are pushed into an unexpected situation that threatens the family’s entire livelihood.

wrong-william-fichtnerIf you’ve seen Dupieux’s debut, Rubber, you can take a stab at what you can expect from his follow-up, Wrong, in what the director calls “an homage to this special love between people and dogs.”  Take a look at the synopsis for Wrong below:

Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick of Reno 911) wakes up one morning to find that his beloved dog Paul has vanished.  In a desperate attempt to get Paul (and his life) back, Dolph must embark on a spiritual journey guided by enigmatic pony-tailed guru Master Chang (William Fichtner) to metaphysically reconnect with his pet.  On his quest, Dolph encounters a series of characters whose lives he drastically alters 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).

Fans of Dupieux’s music (as Mr. Oizo) can download two free tracks from Wrong, with collaboration by Tahiti Boy.  Check below for the download link:
