"Anchor Bay Films had the opportunity to get in on the ground floor with this film and we are thrilled at the results!" stated Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Anchor Bay Films. "We loved the concept and the director, Steven C. Miller. He's quite talented and in fact, we're looking at another project Steven is attached to as director. We're looking forward to working with him."
"All we want to do is make the coolest films we can," commented Travis Stevens, producer of "The Aggression Scale." "Having a supportive partner like Anchor Bay Films on board is like having Quint on a shark hunt.
