Anchor Bay, Wolfe Make Sundance Acquisitions7 Feb, 2012 By: Billy Gil
Anchor Bay Films has acquired all North American distribution rights to director-writer Richard Bates Jr.’s debut feature, Excision, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
The horror film stars AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”), Traci Lords (Cry Baby), Ariel Winter (“Modern Family”), Malcolm McDowell and John Waters. The quirky horror film follows Pauline (McCord), a teenage outcast with horrific fantasies who decides to perform a risky surgery on her sister in order to repair her damaged relationship with her family.
Also, Wolfe Releasing has acquired the North American rights to Mosquita y Mari at Sundance. Writer-director Aurora Guerrero’s debut feature is a complex love story between two young Latinas growing up in South East L.A. Wolfe plans to release the film theatrically this year and on VOD and DVD in 2013.
