Anchor Bay has acquired distribution rights to Infinity Media’s Operation: Endgame, an action film starring Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Rob Corddry (“The Daily Show”) and Odette Yustman (Cloverfield).
The acquisition covers theatrical, DVD and Blu-ray Disc, TV and digital distribution in the United Stated, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Anchor Bay is looking at the third quarter to debut the film.
“We see big potential in audiences embracing Operation Endgame,” said Bill Clark, president of Anchor Bay Entertainment. “Adding an action-thriller of this pedigree just reinforces our commitment to providing a powerhouse release lineup.”
The 2010 film follows two rival teams of government assassins. The acquisition has a price tag of more than $1 million for North America alone.
“Operation: Endgame is a perfect fit for Anchor Bay, and their expertise is renowned throughout the industry,” Infinity’s Michael Ohoven said. “We are proud to have managed to assemble the coolest cast in a provocative, fun and action-packed film.”
