Anchor Bay Films Gets 13 At Toronto International Film Festival
Date: 09/08/2011

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 8, 2011



ANCHOR BAY FILMS PICKS UP THE THRILLER 13 WITH

ITS ALL STAR CAST INCLUDING SAM RILEY,

CURTIS “50 CENT” JACKSON, RAY WINSTONE, ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD,

WITH MICKEY ROURKE AND JASON STATHAM!

TORONTO, ON – Anchor Bay Films just finalized the U.S. rights to 13, a remake of the award-winning 2005 international sensation 13 Tzameti.  Written and directed by Gela Babluani, the original film’s writer/director, 13 boasts an all-star cast including Sam Riley (Control, Brighton Rock), Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin’), Ray Winstone (The Departed, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Alexander Skarsgård (“True Blood”), Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, “Boardwalk Empire,” the upcoming Superman film Man of Steel), Ben Gazzara (Saint Jack, They All Laughed), Emmanuelle Chriqui (You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, “Entourage”) with Oscar® nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, Iron Man 2) and Jason Statham (The Expendables, The Mechanic).  The acquisition was announced by Anchor Bay Entertainment president Bill Clark.

“13 was a great pick-up for Anchor Bay Films,” commented Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Acquisitions and Co-Productions.  “The film has an amazing cast and it truly keeps you guessing.  We’re excited to be working with Babluani in releasing it.” 

The original 13 Tzameti (the Georgian word for “13”) won the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Babluani won best director at the Venice Film Festival that year. 

In the film, Vince Ferro is a man in desperate circumstances. While on a quick fix-it job, he steals an envelope containing instructions for a mysterious job that promises a potential fortune. He assumes a false identity and follows the instructions, only to find himself a numbered participant in an underworld Russian roulette competition, where gamblers place bets on who’ll survive when the trigger is pulled.  The stakes are high, but the payout is more than he can resist. Many are competing for the first time, and a precious few have even returned to play again, but are his odds any better than other players in this most deadly game? What will it take to be the last man standing?
