Anchor Bay takes Biehn thriller

Will release 'The Victim' in U.S.

Anchor Bay Films has snagged North American rights to suspense thriller “The Victim,” starring Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc, Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood, Tanya Newbould and Danielle Harris.

Deal was announced Friday by Anchor Bay Entertainment president Bill Clark.

Actor Biehn made his directorial debut on the pic from his own script. Story centers on a woman who witnesses a violent act at the hands of two sheriff’s deputies, flees from attackers and stumbles across a recluse living in the middle of the woods — which throws his solitary life into chaos.

“The Victim” was produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Lorna Paul and Travis Romero of Blanc/Biehn Prods. in association with Pegasus Prods. Exec producers are Brock Morse, Morgan Johnson and Ryan Honey of the Mud Show.

Stevan Mena and Vincent Butta of Crimson Films will be handling the theatrical release. “The Victim” is the third project Crimson Films and Anchor Bay Films have worked on together.

Hogan Entertainment and Pegasus will be handling the college tour of the film.

Deal was brokered by Kevin Kasha on behalf of Anchor Bay Films, with Preferred Content working on behalf of the filmmakers.
