The acquisition was handled by Agnes Mentre on behalf of Wild Bunch with CAA retaining North American, US, UK (and New Zealand), Australian and South African rights.
Billed as a 'reverse alien invasion' story, the film follows a precocious alien girl whose father is abducted during a hostile invasion of their home planet, Terra. In order to try save her father, the girl kidnaps a crashed and injured human pilot and then tries tow rok with him to broker peace between the planets.
Wild Bunch also has three other new additions to its slate for Toronto: Choke by Clark Gregg, White Material by Claire Denis and Vinyan by Fabrice du Welz.
Gregg, who is also a well-known US TV actor, did script duty on Robert Zemeckis' 2000 thriller What Lies Beneath and makes his directorial debut with Choke. The film is an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's blackly comic novel and stars Anjelica Huston, Sam Rockwell and Kelly Macdonald. It will be ready for Sundance.
Claire Denis marks a departure with White Material, a quasi-action film that takes place in an unnamed African country ravaged by rebellion. Isabelle Huppert, Christophe Lambert and Nicolas Duvauchelle star. The $8.2m (Euros 6m) film will be ready for Cannes.
Vinyan, Fabrice du Welz's follow up to 2004's Calvaire, recently wrapped shooting in Thailand. The film stars Emmanuelle Beart and Rufus Sewell as they search for their son whom they had believed perished during the 2004 tsunami.
Also in Toronto, Wild Bunch will screen the gala world premiere of Alain Corneau's Deuxieme Souffle, a remake of the Jean-Pierre Melville classic starring Daniel Auteuil and Monica Bellucci.
In the Real to Reel section, Wild Bunch has documentary My Enemy's Enemy from The Last King Of Scotland director Kevin Macdonald about Klaus Barbie.
Hana Makhmalbaf's Buddha Collapsed Out Of Shame will have its world premiere in the Visions section - before running in competition in San Sebastian - while Rolf de Heer's Dr. Plonk sees its international premiere in the same sidebar.
After screening out of competition in Venice, Woody Allen's Cassandra's Dream gets its North American premiere in Toronto. Im Kwon Tek's Beyond The Years follows a similar path; screening out of competition in Venice followed by a North American premiere in Toronto.
Wild Bunch also does double duty with Claude Chabrol's A Girl Cut In Two which screens out of competition in Venice before running in the Masters section in Toronto. In its first two weeks of French release, the film has sold 500,000 tickets.
Wild Bunch title La Zona from Rodrigo Pla has its world premiere in Venice Days and will subsequently screen in Toronto's Discovery sidebar. Ambitious animated film Max & Co will have a berth in the Toronto Family Zone - the film recently won the audience award at the Annecy Animation Festival.
Hiner Saleem's Beneath The Rooftops Of Paris, which scored a best actor prize for Michel Piccoli at Locarno, runs in Visions in Toronto.
In Venice, Wild Bunch has two further films in the Horizons competition: Damien Odoul's The Story Of Richard O and a documentary from Arnaud Desplechin, L'Aimee.
