Writer/director Jon Knautz' Slamdance Film Festival horror/comedy "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer" has been acquired by Anchor Bay Entertainment in a mid six-figure deal with a theatrical commitment, the festival announced Friday afternoon. The deal was negotiated by Shaun Redick and Nate Bolotin of the Collective with Anchor Bay's Mark Ward. Several distributors pursued the film, according to Slamdance. Starring Trevor Matthews and Robert Englund ("Nightmare on Elm Street"), the film is described as a "nostalgic throwback to the classic '80s horror-comedy creature features." [Brian Brooks]
