Anchor Bay buys ‘Son of No One’

Sundance title stars Al Pacino, Katie Holmes

After having screened for buyers early on in the fest, Sundance title “The Son of No One” was picked up by Anchor Bay Films for a reported $2 million nabbing U.S. rights.

Anchor Bay plans to release the film theatrically later this year.

Deal was negotiated by WME’s Graham Taylor and Cassian Elwes on behalf of the filmmakers, with Kevin Kasha of Anchor Bay.

Directed by Dito Montiel, “Son” toplines Channing Tatum, Al Pacino, Katie Holmes Ray Liotta and Juliette Binoche. Pic centers on a young cop in New York, played by Tatum, who becomes involved in a police cover-up.

Montiel produced the film with Avi Lerner, Holly Wiersma and John Thompson. Exec producers are Trevor Short, Danny Dimbort and Jake Pushinsky.

“Son,” which was one of the more anticipated titles going into Sundance, preemed on Friday but screened for buyers earlier in the fest. The long-gestating deal likely was because of pic’s less-than-enthusiastic word of mouth.
