Not Forgotten, which stars Simon Baker and Paz Vega, had its world premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City earlier this month.
'We are thrilled to be working with Myriad Pictures and releasing Not Forgotten,' said Anchor Bay Films President Bill Clark in a statement. 'Over the past year, Simon Baker has established himself as an even bigger star with feature as well as television audiences and we know they'll love this film too.'
Baker plays Jack Bishop, a man with a secret past that is revealed when his daughter is kidnapped. Returning to his roots as a believer in the religious cult La Santa Muerte, Bishop is forced to confront his own demons and the growing suspicions of his wife Amaya, played by Paz Vega.
The Anchor Bay/Myriad deal was negotiated by Clark and Senior VP of Acquisitions Kevin Kasha on the Anchor Bay side and Kirk D'Amico for Myriad Pictures.
Anchor Bay Films is a new theatrical brand of Anchor Bay Entertainment, the home entertainment division of Starz Media and operates in North America, UK and Australia. The company focuses on a platform release strategy for its films with an eye to maximizing their ancillary value.
