Coming Soon reports that Anchor Bay Entertainment President Bill Clark announced that Anchor Bay Films has acquired the North American rights for In The Blood. The film is an action thriller starring Gina Carano. It was directed by John Stockwell (Blue Crush, Into the Blue) and also stars Stephen Lang, Luis Guzman, Amaury Nolasco, Cam Gigandet, Danny Trejo, Treat Williams, Ismael Cruz Cordova and Yvette Yates. It will be released in 2014 by Anchor Bay Films and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions, said: "The first time I saw Gina Carano fight with Pro Elite, I knew I had to make a movie with her. 'In The Blood' is the perfect film for Gina and we at Anchor Bay Films are proud to be releasing it."
Here's a synopsis: Gina Carano plays Ava, a newlywed whose husband disappears while they are on their honeymoon in the Caribbean. The grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men she believes kidnapped and killed him. As she tracks down those she believes are responsible, she uncovers a deep conspiracy that becomes a trail of bloody revenge through a lush, tropical backdrop. The film is a suspenseful, non-stop ride that showcases Gina's formidable physical force.
Producers Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield added: "'In the Blood' represents the start of a strong female franchise character and audiences are going to love seeing Gina Carano as 'Ava.'"
The film was written by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston. It was produced by Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Company, with Cash Warren and Marina Grasic. Executive producers include Andrew Mann, Dale Johnson, Nicola Horlick, Lee Portnoi, David Arnold, Stefan Sonnenfeld and Glenn M. Stewart.
