According to The Hollywood Reporter, Newmarket Films has snapped up domestic rights to the Natalie Portman-produced film, Hesher. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The movie reportedly sold for around $1 million. Spencer Susser directed this project.

Gordon-Levitt plays the title role in the film. He is described as "an intrusive, greasy-haired mayhem-seeker" that plants himself into the lives of a troubled 13-year-old boy and his pill-popping father.

The language and subject matter of the film will surely garner it an R-rating. There is no word on when Newmarket plans on releasing Hesher, but the deal is said to include "a significant P&A commitment."
