Anchor Bay to handle upcoming movie slate

LONDON — New distrib Delanic Films has struck a three-year deal for Anchor Bay Entertainment U.K. to handle the DVD release of its movies.

Delanic was launched last year by former Columbia Tristar staffer Joe Simpson and advertising exec Glynn Allanson. Its upcoming pics include Peter Howitt’s “Dangerous Parking,” the Anne Hathaway vehicle “Passengers” and “Hachiko: A Dog’s Story,” starring Richard Gere.
