The Wrestler: Fox Searchlight gets US distribution rights
Anne Thompson reports that after an intense all-night bidding war, Fox Searchlight has acquired U.S. rights for The Wrestler for about $4 million.

After the film's packed screening at the Toronto Film Festival, buyers made their way to the Four Seasons Hotel to make their bids and pitch their release plans.
An Oscar-campaign for Mickey Rourke was an essential component of the deal. Most distributors (like Lionsgate, Overture, Weinstein Co. and Sony) were offering a Monster-style Oscar-qualifying late-year platform with a wider release in January.
