Sean Haggerty only has an hour to deliver his illegal cargo.

An hour to reassure a drug cartel, a hitman, and the DEA that nothing is wrong. An hour to make sure his wife survives.

And he must do it all from the cockpit of his Cessna.

TIGER Gets Its Official Poster

April 28th, 2017 by and tagged

Mary Aloe, Dan Grodnik, Howard Nash and Rocco Pugliese are proud to introduce the official TIGER poster. TIGER, starring Mickey Roarke, Janele Parish, Michael Pugliese and Prem Singh, is based on the true story of Pardeep Nagra, a boxer and practicing Sikh who was banned from the sport for refusing to back down from his spiritual and religious beliefs. As a consequence, his legacy will be forever tied to his two biggest battles: the one in the courtroom, the other in the ring.

Directed by Alister Grierson (SANCTUM), Tiger is an exciting film about a fighter who refuses to back down. Although the film is a commercial “fight” film, it remains a powerful, true story of a man who stands his ground – blending the excitement and energy of “Rocky” with the empathy and drama of “Million Dollar Baby”.

BEAST OF BURDEN with Daniel Radcliffe, Laurence Fishburne and Grace Gummer

March 20th, 2017 by and tagged , , , , ,

BEAST OF BURDEN – action/thriller starring Daniel Radcliffe. I am pleased to announce we are in full principal photography in our studio in Savannah. Think “Phone Booth”, starring Colin Farrell -but Radcliffe in a plane. The rest of the cast is rounding out beautifully, as well – see yesterday’s Hollywood Reporter (below). Btw, this is the second movie our fund, WYSJ MEDIA has provided financing for a film together -I am happy to be leading the fund with my partner, Sean Glover, and with our partner, Wei Wang, in China. Bianca Goodloe you are amazing as our attorney – simply the best !

We will announce our domestic distributor soon, as they are firmly on board, as well. The filming is going so well, we have a very happy cast, director and crew, and the set is running like a fine old Rolex. This is a wonderful script by Adam Hoelzel and our director from Sweden, Jesper Ganslandt is truly amazing. Producing partners, Paul Schiff (our second movie together), Michael Diamond and Dan Reardon are incredible, along with our fearless leader on set, line producer, Rene Besson.

Next up in 2017 – – four more movies coming up and ready to go (one a quarter) – some in Georgia, Chicago, Vancouver, Cologne, and Paris. Excited, but definitely need a vacation!
