LA-based Continental Media has picked up worldwide sales rights to EBF Productions’ upcoming thriller Recovery.

Kirby Bliss Blanton (pictured) and Samuel Larsen have been cast in the project, set to shoot in the summer.

Recovery centres on a high school graduate who searches for the smart phone she believes to be lost, all the while unaware she is the target of twisted kidnap plot.

Alex Shaffer and James Landry Hébert round out the key cast.

Darrell Wheat makes his feature directorial debut from a screenplay by Kyle Arrington. Eric B. Fleischman’s EBF Productions produces with Sean Tabibian.

“With our increased addiction to technology, especially our smart phones, I wanted to explore the lengths people would go to retrieve something stolen… especially something with personal information on it, even when you know you’re in over your head,” said Wheat.
