Woody Harrelson-Starring Superhero Flick 'Defendor' Picked Up By Sony

Woody Harrelson in 'Defendor'Woody Harrelson is about to try his hand against a pack of vicious flesh-eaters in "Zombieland," but that's not the only tremendous feat the actor is facing down -- he's also set to don the tights in superhero flick "Defendor."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group is in final negotiations to acquire the distribution rights for the movie, which recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. Sony would own the worldwide rights to the film in all territories except Canada, where the movie is being released by Alliance. No release date is set.

In "Defendor," Woody Harrelson stars as Arthur Poppington, an everyday man with one unusual difference: he thinks he's a superhero by the name of Defendor. As this masked vigilante -- who could clearly use a few fashion tips from Superman's stylist -- Poppington battles criminals on a quest to take down his arch enemy, Captain Industry.

Along the way, Defendor befriends a young prostitute played by "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" star Kat Dennings. Also starring in the film are Sandra Oh as Poppinton's psychiatrist and the great Elias Koteas as a police detective.

The film was written and directed by actor Peter Stebbings, who has previously appeared in films such as "K-19: The Widowmaker." "Defendor" marks his first produced screenplay and directorial debut.
