After its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon" has just been picked up for distribution by RADiUS-TWC.

Mike Myers directed the film, having met Gordon back in 1991 when trying to use an Alice Cooper song in "Wayne's World" and being close friends with him ever since.

"'Supermensch' has been on our radar for a long time and we were blown away by it in Toronto," RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. "Mike Myers has created something truly special -- a film imbued with wit, charm, and heart. You can feel the love for his one-of-a-kind subject Shep Gordon, a legendary manager whose professional accomplishments are rivaled only by the magnanimous impact he's had on the lives of those around him."

RADiUS plan to release the film in the first quarter of 2014. You can read Indiewire's review of the film from Toronto here.
