He Moves By Night


Whooop! Whooop! Sound the TIFF acquisition alarm: Sony Pictures Worldwide has purchased U.S. and international rights to Defendor, the best Woody Harrelson-as-developmentally-disabled-vigilante-superhero movie you're likely to see this year, or any other for that matter. It's the first feature from Canadian writer/actor/director Peter Stebbings, and stars also Elias Koteas as a bad lieutenant, Kat Dennings as the hooker he roughs up, and Sandra Oh as the shrink who decides Defendor's fate. Also picked up, the disturbing and excellent Dogtooth (our review here) by New York-based Kino Intl. [Variety]
