ANCHOR BAY FILMS PICKS UP

FATHER OF INVENTION

STARRING ACADEMY AWARD™ WINNER

KEVIN SPACEY

BEVERLY HILLS, CA -- Anchor Bay Films announced today the pick up of the comedy Father of Invention starring Academy Award™ winning actor Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses, American Beauty), Camilla Belle (10,000 BC, When a Stranger Calls), Heather Graham (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, The Hangover) and Virginia Madsen (Sideways, The Number 23).  The film was co-financed by Sunrise Films, LLC and debuted as an official selection at the Berlin International Film Festival.  Anchor Bay Films has acquired all distribution rights in the U.S., U.K. as well as Australia and New Zealand.  Bill Clark, President of Anchor Bay Entertainment, made the announcement. 

Father of Invention offers two hours of great laughs with a talented cast,” remarked Clark.  “We have no doubt that audiences worldwide will enjoy it as much as our worldwide team will enjoy working on it.” 

“Kevin Spacey is one of the most versatile actors in our business and this film is proof of that,” stated Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Acquisitions and Co-productions.  “It’s an excellent cast and Craig Robinson’s recent hits are proof that he has amazing comedic timing.” 

“With the expertise from Anchor Bay Films in the independent film marketplace as well as the ancillary platforms, they are the perfect strategic partner for this film,” commented Kia Jam, producer of the film.  “We’re looking forward to working with them on Father of Invention.”

Kevin Spacey is Robert Axle, an eccentric inventor turned ego maniacal infomercial guru, who loses it all when one of his inventions maims thousands of customers.  After eight years in a maximum security prison, Axle is ready to redeem his name and rebuild his billion dollar empire.  But first, he must convince his estranged 22-year old daughter (Belle) to let him live with her and her quirky, over-protective roommates.  The film co-stars Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine, Pineapple Express) and newcomer Ana Anissimova.
