Detention , the feature film co-written by former Coast film critic Mark Palermo, has been picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions to distribute globally, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Detention is, by all accounts, a teen slasher comedy, starring Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook and Shanley Caswell. It was directed by Joseph Kahn, who shares the screenplay credit with Palermo.

We'll be sure to let you know when the film is scheduled to open in Halifax.
