Anchor Bay takes U.K. rights for 'Cleaning'

Christine Jeff's film has U.S. gross of $11 mil to date

CANNES -- Anchor Bay Films has acquired all U.K. distribution rights, including theatrical and home entertainment, to Hanway Films' dramatic comedy, "Sunshine Cleaning."

Overture Films released Christine Jeff's film, starring Amy Adams and Emily Blunt, in March domestically and it has grossed just over $11 million to date.

This acquisition comes as Anchor Bay Entertainment builds up its new theatrical distribution division, Anchor Bay Films, headed by president Bill Clark.

Anchor Bay will release the film theatrically in the U.K. this summer with a DVD release to follow in the autumn.
