Momentum Pictures has taken the UK rights to Neil Burger's The Return from sales company QED.

Robert Walak, Momentum's director of acquisitions, negotiated the deal with Kim Fox, SVP worldwide sales at QED.

Lionsgate has US rights and is considering a December release.

The drama is about three soldiers returning from Iraq who take an unexpected road trip. Rachel McAdams, Tim Robbins and Michael Pena star.

Rick Schwartz is producing with Brian Koppelman & David Levien. The project is currently shooting in the US.

The Return follows three soldiers returning from Iraq who become companions on an unexpected road trip across the US.

Burger said: 'The film is very much a look at America today, what's going on in our society and its changing character from a fresh perspective. It's emotional - funny and heartbreaking but it's real. In Rachel, Tim and Michael, I believe we've got very dynamic actors and I'm looking forward to working with them.'
