Anchor Bay made one of the first picks up of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, choosing to make a deal for The Rambler for distribution in the U.K., Australia, and North America. The film stars Dermot Mulroney, Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood), and Natasha Lyonne and was written & directed by Calvin Lee Reeder (actor in V|H|S, director of The Oregonian). The feature is based on Reeder’s 2008 short film.
Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President Acquisitions and Co-Productions confirmed, the acquisition, saying “Anchor Bay is the perfect partner for Calvin’s film The Rambler. It has all the elements that our fans truly love and we look forward to working with Calvin.”
“I’ve always loved Anchor Bay Films. Repo Man, Holy Mountain and El Topo make my top 10 all timers for sure. I am so excited to be working with the company that revived those legendary midnight movies, it’s a real honor,” said Reeder.
After being released from prison, a man known as The Rambler (Mulroney) stumbles upon a strange mystery as he attempts a dangerous journey through treacherous back roads and small towns en route to reconnecting with his long lost brother.
