Also at Toronto Thursday, indie banner ThinkFilm -- which unsuccessfully tried late Wednesday night to create a partnership with Lions Gate to acquire the Christian Bale starrer "Harsh Times" -- closed a deal with ICM to pick up worldwide rights to Josh Gilbert's docu "Aka Tommy Chong."

"Chong," made by Blue Chief Entertainment, follows the U.S. government's real-life case against the stoner comedy icon of the film's title for manufacturing bongs in 2003.

Gilbert penned the pic, which features appearances by Chong as well as Jay Leno, Bill Maher, Cheech Marin and George Thorogood. Pic preemed Friday in the Real to Reel section.

"It's a film that I targeted personally. It is a fabulous blend of contemporary issues, coupled with tremendous nostalgia," ThinkFilm president Jeff Sackman said.
