Kat Dennings, Woody Harrelson and Sandra Oh get DEFENDOR

Kat Dennings (NICK AND NORA’S INFINITE PLAYLIST, HOUSEBUNNY) has signed on to play the role of Kat in the new feature film DEFENDOR, joining Woody Harrelson (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, THE PEOPLE VS LARRY FLYNT) and Sandra Oh (SIDEWAYS, GREY’S ANATOMY). Harrelson will be playing Arthur, a regular man who believes he has a secret identity as the superhero DEFENDOR. Sandra Oh plays his psychiatrist and Kat Dennings plays a teenager living on the streets whom Arthur befriends.

The picture is being produced by Darius Films’ principal Nicholas Tabarrok (COOPERS CAMERA, WEIRDSVILLE, THE LIFE AND HARD TIMES OF GUY TERRIFCO). DEFENDOR is written and will be directed by Peter Stebbings in his feature film directing debut. Principal photography begins in November in Toronto .

“It’s an incredible cast for an indie” enthuses Tabarrok. “We pretty much cover the gamut - from Kat the most in-demand, up and coming young star to Woody, one of the best actors of his own generation to Sandra a superb actress from the hottest show on TV. We assembled a fantastic group of talent”.

Last month, Tabarrok was named one of Variety’s Top Producers to Watch. His production company, Darius Films, premiered its two most recent films at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival (COOPERS CAMERA and DOWN TO THE DIRT) continuing its history of financing and producing indie films which go on to play some of the great festivals around the world where they are often sold for distribution. “DEFENDOR is financed with the US domestic still available, so yah, with this cast I think it’s likely this will be a hot property on the buyers list come festival time” says Tabarrok.

The DEFENDOR deals were brokered by Tabarrok and Mick Sullivan at CAA for Dennings, Jeremy Plager at CAA for Harrelson and Marsha McManus of Principal Entertainment for Oh.
