Zak Penn's improvisational poker comedy The Grand has been snatched up by Anchor Bay Entertainment. According to Variety, the company will release the $3 million mockumentary early next year.

Starz Home Entertainment's Bill Clark stated, "We saw the potential for the movie to get a huge groundswell and become a legitimate theatrical hit. It's about clever target marketing. We're increasing the array of genres and titles we are acquiring."

The Grand stars Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta, Ray Romano, Dennis Farina, Richard Kind, Gabe Kaplan, Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines.
