Sundance 2011: 'Son of No One' finds a daddy

February 1, 2011 |  2:18 pm


"Son of No One," the Channing Tatum-Al Pacino crime drama that played the Sundance Film Festival, will be coming to theaters. Anchor Bay, the small distributor that released "City Island' last year, has acquired the movie.

Dito Montiel's movie centers on a New York City police officer (Tatum) tormented by a secret that threatens to catch up to him. As the walls close in, he finds himself on the run from his boss (Ray Liotta), and wonders if he can even trust his godfather, who's also the police commissioner (Pacino).

The movie, which co-stars Katie Holmes, played to a warm reception to a full house of approximately 1,200 film-goers at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, Utah, on Friday night. The movie had become a hot topic at the festival after a report that a number of people had left a media and industry screening early.
