Anchor Bay takes ‘Bait 3D’

Australian horror-actioner set for U.S. release

Anchor Bay Films has snapped up North American distribution rights to Australian horror-actioner “Bait 3D.”

Produced by Gary Hamilton, Todd Fellman and Peter Barber, pic stars Xavier Samuel (“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”), Sharni Vinson (“Step Up 3D”), Singaporean thesps Adrian Pang and Qi Yuwu, Phoebe Tonkin, Dan Wyllie and Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”).

Story’s set in a sleepy beach community where shoppers at an underground supermarket are terrorized by a crazed bandit when a tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped, with rushing water threatening to entomb them, the survivors discover the tsunami has brought unwanted visitors from the depths — hungry great white sharks.

The deal was negotiated by Kevin Kasha, Josh Thomashow and Marc Barson for Anchor Bay Films and Gary Hamilton, Chris Perry and Mike Gabrawy on behalf of Arclight.
