Anchor Bay Films has acquired all UK rights to HanWay Films’ comedy Sunshine Cleaning starring Emily Blunt and Amy Adams.

The pair star as sisters who work for their family’s crime scene clean-up service.

The film premiered at Sundance 2008 and is currently in US release through Anchor Bay’s sister company Overture Films.

The acquisition comes on the heels of the recent launch of Anchor Bay Films, the theatrical distribution arm of the worldwide home entertainment company Anchor Bay Entertainment.

This new theatrical division is headed by Anchor Bay Entertainment president Bill Clark and plans to release 8-10 films annually.
