Antiviral picked up by IFC

According to The Hollywood Reporter, IFC has picked up the rights to Brandon Cronenberg's "Antiviral" which debuted at Cannes:

"The first feature film from Brandon Cronenberg, who is David Cronenberg’s son, the futuristic film is set in a clinic that harvests live viruses from sick celebrities and then sells them to the celebrities’ rabid fans. It stars Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Douglas Smith and Malcolm McDowell and was produced by Niv Fichman of RhombusMedia. 
"Antiviral is a stunningly smart debut from Brandon Cronenberg, who is greatly aided by his strong stars Caleb Landry Jones and Sarah Gadon, as well as Karim Hussain's cinematography. The film manages to skewer our culture's obsession with celebrity while also delivering more than a fair share of chills and gruesome body horror,” 
Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said."
