Sony Gets Toronto’s ‘Defendor’

Film stars Woody Harrelson, Sandra Oh, Kat Dennings.

Sony has picked up writer/director Peter Stebbings’ “Defendor,” starring Woody Harrelson, Sandra Oh and Kat Dennings.

The film, which screened at the Toronto film festival, is about a delusional man who thinks he's a superhero.

The deal was negotiated by Darius Films, Joker Films and Cinetic Media. Sony's deal includes all worldwide rights to the film, except Canada.

The pick-up marks Sony's first action at Toronto and follows a day in which the Weinstein Company grabbed distribution rights to hot title "A Single Man."
