ANCHOR BAY FILMS INKS RIGHTS TO

MR. JONES AT 2013 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL

NEW YORK, NY – Anchor Bay Films has landed the rights to Mr. Jones at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.  The company has picked up all North American rights to the thriller from writer/director Karl Mueller (screenwriter of The Divide).  Mr. Jones is produced by Preferred Film & TV’s Ross M. Dinerstein and executive produced by Content’s Jamie Carmichael. Mr. Jones, starring Jon Foster (BrotherhoodThe Informers) and Sarah Jones (“Vegas”, “Big Love”, “Sons of Anarchy”), will have its world premiere at Tribeca on Friday, April 19th.  Mr. Jones marks Anchor Bay Films’ third release produced by Dinerstein, having previously released director Zak Penn’s The Grand and Xavier Gens’ The Divide. Bill Clark, Anchor Bay Entertainment president, made today’s announcement. Content is handling worldwide sales and are co-representing North America with Preferred Content.

"We are delighted to be in business again with Preferred Film & TV”, commented Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Anchor Bay Films.  “This is a unique and original film that will keep horror fans guessing throughout.  Ross has once again demonstrated his talent and passion for producing genre films."

Dinerstein said, “We have a great rapport and history with our friends at Anchor Bay and are confident we’ve found a great home forMr. Jones. This deal is a great way to kick off our world premiere at Tribeca.”

From the producer of the Sundance smash hit The Pact and the writer of Xavier Gens’ The DivideMr. Jones is a journey into a nightmare that’s so real, even daylight brings no relief.  Scott and Penny just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art.  Their only neighbor for miles is a strange hermit who only comes out at night, under the shroud of darkness.  He never acknowledges them, never speaks – never does anything except drag his strange disturbing sculptures deep into the woods, night after night, without rest.  As Scott (Jon Foster) and Penny (Sarah Jones) get deeper into his world, they start to suspect that this man is actually an infamous, reclusive artist known only as “Mr. Jones,” and they’ve stumbled across a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document his bizarre existence.  But this is only the beginning.  When Scott and Penny delve too deeply into Mr. Jones’ existence, everything around them turns in on itself and their only escape is through the realm of their own nightmares. 

 

Mr. Jones is the third film produced by the Preferred Content / Content Media Corporation (CMC) venture Preferred Film & TV (PFT) formed in 2012.
