Anchor Bay Films Acquires Girls Against Boys

In one of the first distribution deals at the SXSW Film Festival, Anchor Bay Films today announced the company has acquired the North American rights to Austin Chick’s Girls Against Boys, the controversial thriller that opened the Midnighter’s section this past Friday. The acquisition was announced by Bill Clark, President of Anchor Bay Entertainment.

“The film is a perfect addition to our 2012 line-up,” commented Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Anchor Bay Films. “Anchor Bay has just the audience base for it!”
“We are so excited to be the first film to sell at SXSW and very pleased that Anchor Bay will bring Girls Against Boys to theaters this year,” offered writer-director Austin Chick, speaking for producers Clay Floren and Aimee Shieh.

The female revenge killing spree thriller, written and directed by Austin Chick (XX/XY), stars Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies) and Nicole LaLiberte (Dinner for Schmucks, Kaboom). Panabaker plays Shae, a 21-year old student who, after a brutal sexual assault, teams up with fellow nightclub bartender – LaLiberte’s “Lu” – on a weekend of one beautifully staged execution after another.

Girls Against Boys found an early champion in Charles Ealy, Austin American Statesman, who called the movie “provocative,” “stylishly filmed” and praised Panabaker and LaLiberte’s performances as “excellent.”

Girls Against Boys is produced by Aimee Shieh and Clay Floren. The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow and Michele Sanchez at Anchor Bay Films and Ben Weiss at Paradigm for the film.
