Sony Pictures is to participate in this year's ShoWest exhibitors convention in Las Vegas with a premiere screening of its romantic comedy Mr Deeds and the final day luncheon. The events will take place on March 7.

This year is a particularly high-powered one for Sony Pictures with a lineup including Spiderman, Men In Black 2 and Stuart Little 2.

Mr Deeds, a remake of Mr Deeds Goes To Town, stars Adam Sandler and Winona Ryder and was directed by Steven Brill and will open in the summer.
