After much speculation and a heated bidding war, Anchor Bay Films emerged as the new home for Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem. Under the agreement, Anchor Bay will handle all U.S. distribution rights on the film. Written and directed by Rob Zombie, The Lords of Salem stars Sheri Moon Zombie (Halloween) as well as Bruce Davison (X-Men), Jeffrey Daniel Phillips (Halloween II), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) and Judy Geeson (To Sir, with Love). The film premiered last week at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and received rave reviews from mainstream and genre critics alike. Anchor Bay Entertainment President Bill Clark made today's announcement.
"We're extremely excited to be working on this film with Rob," commented Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions. "It's a perfect fit for Anchor Bay."
