The Toronto distributor has acquired Canadian rights to the Gina Carano action thriller. Separately, Cinedigm has picked up US rights to Open Windows.
In The Blood will open theatrically on April 24. John Stockwell directed the story of a highly capable woman on honeymoon who rescues her kidnaped husband.
“Gina Carano is without a doubt, the most badass action heroine in Hollywood today,” said Raven Banner’s Michael Paszt. “It’s a real thrill for us to be releasing the film in Canada.”
Paszt and co-managing partner James Fler negotiated the deal with Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Co and Arianne Fraser of international sales agent Highland Film Group.
- Cinedigm has acquired US rights from CAA to Nacho Vigalondo’s thriller Open Windows starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey. The film premiered at SXSW and will open theatrically in early autumn.
- Anchor Bay Films has acquired the rights to Howard J Ford and Jon Ford’s zombie road movie The Dead 2: India and will release this autumn.
