Anchor Bay acquires Brittany Murphy’s final film



Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights to Michael Feifer’s “Abandoned,” which features Brittany Murphy in her final role before she died. The film is a psychological thriller that is written by Peter Sullivan, produced by Jeffrey Schenck and Barry Barnholtz, and is slated for a summer 2010 release.

PR Newswire reported that Senior Vice President Kevin Kasha said, “Anchor Bay established its reputation by releasing some of the most thrilling films on the market, and Abandoned is a movie that delivers. Abandoned has the kind of twists and turns that will have the audience guessing until the end; and keep them talking after.”

Producers Schenck and Barnholtz both stated, “Brittany will be deeply missed by everyone who worked on Abandoned. The film is a taut thriller which portrays Brittany’s character as smart and tough – and that’s how we all want to remember her.”

    I still can not believe that Brittany is gone. What a great loss.
