“Mr. Pink” A Hot Film For Global Universal

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Los Angeles, CA – May 19, 2011 – Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB/BB: GBHL) announced today that its US Production subsidiary, Global Universal Entertainment, Inc. has optioned the motion picture and television rights to the recently published book, “Mr. Pink”.

“Mr. Pink is one hot property”, stated Daniel Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment. “Mr. Pink”, is the true story of four well off college students who pulled off one of the largest heists in the art world. The valuable art books are worth over twelve million dollars!”

Former Paramount Executive Sherkow continued, “the ‘Mr. Pink’ project is an exciting and compelling true story, which is featured on Google under The Transy Book Heist, and more info is at: http://www.whoismrpink.com/. It is timely, teen driven, yet bears a strong moral lesson.”

Veteran writer and film producer Jackie Giroux has adapted the screenplay from Blake Allen and Allen Brothers Publishing. Giroux will produce the picture, along with Blake Allen, Sydney Allen, and Mike Markwell, as Executive Producers. “I read the book in one sitting” exclaimed Giroux. “It is very similar to Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. If these four very different personalities had not met in college, the ingenious heist idea would have never come to fruition. They fed upon each other’s talents. This will be the fascination for a great Hollywood cast, and a hit film!”

Global Universal expects to shoot a portion of the picture in Kentucky and has begun evaluating locations within that State. In addition, Global Universal is also in conversations with distributors as it explores various distribution options.

Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Universal, stated that, “the ‘Mr. Pink’ project has the potential to add significant value to the company due to its potential ‘box office appeal’ and our ability to produce the picture at a comparatively reasonable cost.” Mr. Rasmussen continued, “as an additional revenue stream, Global Universal will share in the proceeds of the book in addition to its participation in the motion picture”.
