Darren Lynn Bousman's remake of Mother's Day was expected to be released in the US earlier this year, but we haven't had a status update in quite some time. The film has been released in a number of other countries and is already available on Blu-ray/DVD in the UK. While Mother's Day won't see a 2011 release in the US, we now have confirmation that Anchor Bay has acquired the film for US distribution.

According to Deadline, Anchor Bay is looking to release the film on or near Mother's Day in 2012, which falls on May 13th. Starring Rebecca De Mornay, Deborah Ann Woll, Shawn Ashmore, and Lisa Marcos, Mother's Day is a remake of the 1980 Troma film:

"After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their "Mother" (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, "Johnny" (Matt O'Leary), has been shot and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.

But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found: she lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, "Beth" and "Daniel Sohapi" (Jaime King and Frank Grillo) and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers' unwitting hostages.

Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys' sister Lydia (Deborah Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, she brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons' escape from the law."
