Young Cleopatra - Feature Film

'Young Cleopatra' is the first of a number of fast paced, glamorous, exotic films designed for a family audience.

Growing up in Alexandria as a royal princess, daughter of the Pharaoh, young Cleopatra's enchanted existence comes to an abrupt end when her father is overthrown in a coup by her sister.  

Cleopatra's own life is threatened and her only hope of survival is to escape the palace and evade her evil sister. Hiding out in the dark and foreboding labyrinthine secret tunnels that run under the palace complex, Cleopatra is confronted with perilous challenges her life as a princess has not prepared her for.

A strange and frightening sorceress who seems to haunt the tunnels below the palace appears to her, bringing mystical warnings, clues and prophecies.

Cleopatra enlists the help of Mark Anthony, a young Roman officer assigned to Egypt. For a price, he can raise an army to help bring her father back to the throne. Try as she might, the young Cleopatra finds it hard to resist his rugged good looks and boyish charm.   

Cleopatra's journey for survival now becomes an odyssey of discovery and transformation, as she heeds the old sorceress's warning and goes to the great temple of the goddess Isis.  

Young Cleopatra, Princess of Egypt fights for her life, discovers love, and emerges as a goddess - one of the truly immortal figures of history, in a classic tale of adventure and escape set in a land of ancient mystery.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Gallico's novel
The Boy Who Invented the Bubble Gun - Feature Film

Based on the novel by Paul Gallico ('The Poseidon Adventure', 'The Snow Goose'), 'Bubble Gun' is Gallico at his best - with writing full of brilliant observations of the human condition and an abundance of wry humour.

A young boy, neglected by his wealthy father, takes a bus from Seattle to Washington DC to patent his seemingly harmless invention - a gun that shoots bubbles.

Se
t in 1974, it is redolent of a time when the United States was in a great period of change. The Presidency, the Vietnam war, the music, a new social fluidity - all are reflected in this touching story of a boy and a young man, each on his own quest to find their rightful place in the world.

An adventure thriller, with lots of jeopardy, all set against the backdrop year of America’s historic identity crisis. It will be a suspenseful, thrilling, roller-coaster adventure tale, with lots of big laughs, and have the makings of a fun filled family entertainment movie with all the trimmings.

We are currently seeking Canadian co-producers.

 
 
 
 
Whatever Love Is - Feature Film

In the tradition of 'The Full Monty', 'Whatever Love Is' is a hilarious comedy based on the hit British stage play of the same title. Written by Dave Simpson, the show was a huge hit and toured the UK for more than three years to an audience of over a million happy customers.

The film will benefit from a very high profile when it hits the screen in the UK - If only the people who saw the show see the movie with a friend, the film will recoup and make a profit from the UK alone. The team behind the film are experienced, and include past presidents of both production and distribution of major Hollywood Studios.
We expect to go into production early next year.

During a boisterous and revealing 'hen' night we learn that men aren't the only ones who can have fun. As the night wears on, each girl is forced to examine their own relationship with the opposite sex. Their feelings are revealed as bare as the boys’ bodies - will their lives ever be the same again? It's the story of four women and their men, as poignant and touching as it’s funny and outrageous!

The Girl On A Bicycle, The Kathleen Kennedy Story - Telefilm

Written by David Butler, 'Girl on a Bicycle' is the untold story of Kathleen, favourite daughter of Senator Joe Kennedy.

Her doomed romance with Billy Hartington, the dashing young protestant aristocrat and heir to the largest estate in Great Britain. Surrounded by glamour and extreme wealth, it was the courageousness of her decision to follow her heart, rather than her upbringing and society protocol that won the day. Set against a time when private lives and human passions were dominated by the force of external events.

The telefim has the potential to be an 'event' type show, with a very starry cast - there are lots of wonderful co-starring roles, as well as the three young attractive leads.

 
 

What's Cooking? - Television Series

Stagescreen’s film 'What's Cooking?' distributed by Lionsgate Entertainment is now the launching pad for the television series.

In the movie, we examined families just like your own - three generations coping with each other, and the trauma of a major American holiday. They all had different cultural perspectives but ALL were very American, very familiar, and non-PC. It was also a look at how families are changing and taking new shape.

In the series being developed by a major American cable television company we follow the every day lives of women, who not only run a home and family, but also have a job.

We move from the home to the work place and back again,examining Los Angels as it really is, an opportunity to see truthful side of the city of angels - four families with women very much at the helm. This is the engine that drives our story.

 
 
 

Private View - Feature Film

Peter Nichols is one of England's most distinguished writers for both stage and screen. His credits include 'National health', 'A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg', and 'Georgie Girl'.

Based on his stage hit in both London and Broadway, 'Private View' is about a married couple and their fantasy alter egos and how they survive brushes with infidelity. It’s a savage view of marriage and adultery in all its permutations and complications.

It’s also very funny, similar in tone to the highly successful film 'American Beauty' and we believe the quality of the finished screenplay together with Peter Nichols' name, will attract some rather special talent to the film.

 
 

The Great Svengali - Theatre

A play with music, and based on the tale of Svengali and Trilby, 'The Great Svengali' takes place at a newly renovated Ramada Inn, Annex Lounge, Bar and Grill, downtown USA. The Book, music and lyrics are by Bradford Craig.

Marvin is a middle-aged and bitter wanna-be-singer. He is billed as 'The Great Svengali'. Each night while performing his act, he hypnotises volunteers from the lounge show audience (the actual theatre audience) where he claims to be able to take away your troubles, bad habits and/or phobias.

From the audience comes Candi an attractive nineteen year old, who believes she cannot sing a note. By the end of the evening however, Marvin has convinced both her and the entire audience that she has a voice that will thrill all who are lucky enough to hear her.
