Weinsteins Drop Seven Figures on TIFF's Dirty Girl

dirtygirl_tiff_120.jpgThe second big deal of the Toronto Film Festival occurred today when the Weinstein Company acquired the road-trip flick Dirty Girl for a reported $3 million. Uh, wow. Abe Sylvia directed the '80s-set film, starring Juno Temple as the title character who flees her high school (and possibly her bad reputation) with a gay classmate. Dwight Yoakam, Milla Jovovich and Willam H. Macy co-star; the purchase includes a theatrical-release guarantee, so save the shelf jokes for at least another six months if you don't mind. [Deadline]
