Already this year's second highest-grossing R-rated film in the UK, the North American rights to "Filth" were recently acquired by Magnolia Pictures. The black comedy starring James McAvoy is based on the novel by Irvine Welsh ("Trainspotting") and has garnered plenty of accolades including British Independent Film Award nominations for Best Actor (McAvoy), Best Director (Jon S. Baird), Best Supporting Actress (Shirley Henderson), and Best Supporting Actor (Eddie Marsan).

"Filth" centers on anti-hero, Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a bipolar, bigoted junkie cop who starts coming unhinged and slowly loses his grip on reality as he tries to hold his life together.

Magnolia is set to release the film theatrically early next year.
