It seems like we have been hearing about Mother's Day forever. Darren Lynn Bousman's remake of the Troma classic debuted on the festival circuit more than a year ago and has been languishing in limbo every since. Today, Anchor Bay announced that they picked up distribution rights to this anticipated chiller. No release date is set as of yet, but one can hope they won't go the "easy" route and make us wait until Mother's Day of 2012 to see the flick. More details after the jump.
From the press release:
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home…only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers' unwitting hostages. Their mother and sister arrive, and it soon becomes obvious that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, Mother brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons' escape. Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night.
Mother's Day stars Rebecca DeMornay (The Hand That Rocks the Cradle), Jamie King (Sin City), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), and Shawn Ashmore (Frozen).
