Anchor Bay Nabs Some New TitlesGoon
Anchor Bay has recently began going after newer films rather than releasing the older cult classic films that we know and love. This has become more and more apparent over the years that this is the route that the company will be headed. Ever since Starz Media bought them out it seems they have decided to speed up the process.
Today it was announced by The Hollywood Reporter that Anchor Bay will be picking up U.S. rights to Gilles Pacquet-Brenner's psychological thriller "Walled In". The film stars Mischa Barton and co-stars Deborah Kara Unger and Cameron Bright. Barton plays a demolition company exec that finds some "disturbing things" when an old building is razed.
Apparently Anchor Bay has also picked up Fritt Vilt aka Cold Prey as well. No information was provided about what kind of release Anchor Bay will give it theatrically if any. Being that it is a Swedish film I wouldn't bet on any kind of big deal. Once we get some more details we will let you know.
