BEVERLY HILLS, California -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/14/07 -- Empire Film Group,
Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EFGU) ("Empire Film") (http://www.empirefilmgroup.com)
has selected January 18, 2008 as the theatrical launch date for the new
comedy "Blonde & Blonder" starring Pamela Anderson and
Denise Richards. The film will open as a special theatrical engagement in
ten key U.S. markets as part of a charitable campaign to raise funds for
the Pamela Anderson supported group, PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of
"Blonde & Blonder" tells the story of two
gorgeous-but-disconnected young ladies who are mistakenly identified as
mob killers and pursued by a menagerie of colorful characters. The film
premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where it was described by a
reviewer for Knight Ridder newspapers as "'Legally Blonde' meets
'Dumb & Dumber,'" a comparison that met with the approval of
director Dean Hamilton.
"It's a very funny, mainstream picture," said Hamilton.
"We wanted to create a PG-13 level comedy that would appeal to men as
well as women, and the response has been superb. This is a terrific
picture to use in launching the theatrical releasing division of Empire
Film Group, as well as the goodwill value of our charitable tie-in with
PETA," he concluded.
Key cities targeted for the initial theatrical launch include New York,
Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando, Tampa-St.
Petersburg and Las Vegas. First Look Studios (www.FirstLookStudios.com)
