Already reported exclusively here on Bloody Disgusting this past November, it was officially announced that Anchor Bay Films has picked up rights in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and New Zealand to CineTel Films’ remake of the 1978 cult film I Spit On Your Grave. Directed by Steven R. Monroe, the new version tells the story of a city girl, played by Sarah Butler, who rents an isolated cabin in the country to write a novel. The victim of an assault and rape, she seeks vengeance on her attackers. Andrew Howard (Luster, Devil’s Chair, Blood River), Chad Lindberg (Push), Daniel Franzese (Killer Pad, War of the Worlds), Rodney Eastman (Joey in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and 4), Sarah Butler, Jeff Branson, Saxon Sharbino and Amber Dawn Landrum all star, as previously reported. The new details are that it will receive a targeted theatrical release in the fall, followed by a DVD release in the first quarter of 2011.
