Bauer Martinez Distribution recently beat out competitors in picking up the rights to David Ayer’s “Harsh Times” at the Toronto Film Fest.

Other upcoming Bauer releases include Andrew Lau’s “The Flock,” starring Richard Gere and Claire Danes; “The Groomsmen,” written and directed by Ed Burns; and Amy Heckerling’s “I Could Never Be Your Woman,” starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd.
