Dark comedy sold at Toronto

Jason Bateman’s comedy “Bad Words” has earned its red band trailer, which is replete with F-bombs and plenty of snark.

Focus Features, which has set the film for a March release, snapped up worldwide distribution rights to Bateman’s directorial debut following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Bateman plays a foul-mouthed high school dropout who enters a national children’s spelling bee through a registration loophole. The indie, produced by Bateman’s Aggregate Films with Darko and MXN Entertainment, was shot over 29 days at the end of last year in Los Angeles.
