Anchor Bay Films has picked up rights in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and New Zealand to CineTel Films' remake of the 1978 cult film "I Spit On Your Grave."
Directed by Steven R. Monroe, the new version of "Spit" tells the story of a city girl, played by Sarah Butler, who rents an isolated cabin in the country to write a novel. The victim of an assault and rape, she seeks vengeance on her attackers.
The cast includes Daniel Franzese, Chad Lindberg, Rodney Eastman and Andrew Howard.
"Spit" was produced by CineTel's Paul Hertzberg and Lisa Hansen in association with Anchor Bay.
It will receive a targeted theatrical release in the fall, followed by a DVD release in the first quarter of 2011.
