Holmes, Tracy Morgan, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche. CLOSING NIGHT FILM
After a not so successful showing at Sundance Film Festival, the trailer releases for Son of No
One with much hope of gathering audiences worldwide!
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The cop drama "The Son
of No One," which became a hot topic at Sundance after a dozen or so audience members walked out of the theater during a screening,
has landed a U.S. distributor.
Anchor Bay has paid about $2 million for rights to writer-director
Dito Montiel's picture, which stars Channing Tatum, Al Pacino, Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta and Tracy Morgan.
The film's world premiere was the closing-night selection at the
festival on Friday. The walkouts occurred during a screening for press and industry on January 24.
Tatum stars as a young Queens police officer who must face his
dark past when a longtime secret bubbles to the surface.
"Atmospheric and intriguing but not wholly satisfying, it has
enough genre appeal and star power to sell some tickets but may not benefit from word of mouth," according to
The Hollywood Reporter's review.
