A few hours after leaving last night's press screening of Finn Taylor's The Darwin Awards, my phone started blowing up with the news that the thing had been bought. Rights were picked up by Bauer Martinez – the new kids on the block, who came out of relative obscurity to pick up Harsh Times at Toronto – in a deal brokered sometime after the pic's Wednesday night public premiere. Darwin has an all-star cast, including Winona Ryder, Joseph Fiennes, the late Chris Penn, poet laureate Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Metallica as Metallica. The film, a takeoff on the website which "awards" those unlucky enough to get themselves killed in idiotic ways, was shot on video in and around San Francisco. Variety had no financial details to report, but we'll pass them along as soon as we can.
