There's an English-subtitled trailer for Daniel 'Podz' Grou's 7 Days (Les 7 jours du talion) - a.k.a. "Seven Days" and "Les sept jours du talion" - on the website of Alliance Vivafilm. (There's an unsubtitled HD version of that trailer on AlloCiné.)

The screenplay for 7 Days was written by Patrick Senécal, based on his novel Les sept jours du talion. The movie stars Claude Legault, Martin Dubreuil, Fanny Mallette, Rémy Girard, Pascale Delhaes, and Rose-Marie Coallier.

Here's a synopsis for 7 Days from the production: "Bruno Hamel (Claude Legault) is a thirty-eight-year-old surgeon. He lives in Drummondville with his wife Sylvie (Fanny Mallette) and their eight-year-old daughter Jasmine (Rose-Marie Coallier). Like many happy people, he leads an uneventful life, until a beautiful fall afternoon when his daughter is raped and murdered. From then on, the world of the Hamel family collapses. When the murderer is arrested, a terrible project germinates in Bruno's darkened mind. He plans to capture the 'monster' (Martin Dubreuil) and make him pay for his crime. The day the murderer appears in court, Bruno - who had prepared his plan in great detail - kidnaps the monster. He later sends the police a brief message, stating that the rapist and murderer of his daughter is going to be tortured for 7 days and then executed. Once this task is accomplished, he will give himself up."

Patrick Sénécal wrote this as well as Evil Words that came out a few years ago.

His writing is very good, good horror elements usually, so hopefully this will also be a good adaptation.

The director of this I am not very familiar with but the cast is decent. Remy Girard is a very good actor.

VOD platform Sundance Selects and the Sundance Film Festival are collaborating on the day-and-date VOD release of three festival films.

Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross' socio-political documentary The Shock Doctrine, Josh and Benny Safdie's bittersweet comedy Daddy Longlegs (known internationally as Go Get Some Rosemary), and Daniel Grou's horror entry 7 Days are all launching under the auspices of Direct From The Sundance Film Festival.

The featured films will be available on VOD the same day they premiere at the festival and will go out on most major cable systems including Comcast, Cablevision, Cox, Time Warner, as well as satellite provider Direct TV.
