LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTC: GBHL/GBHLE) announced today that its wholly-owned U.S. production subsidiary Global Universal Entertainment, Inc. has agreed to produce “Down The Stretch“! Writer and Director Geoffrey Rush protege, Matthew D. McClure (Award winning short director of “Julio”), brings this new and exciting action crime adventure project which is sure to thrill audiences. It is a story of the fading world of the race track and a young gambler’s seduction into a big long shot. It is a true “Calling all Bruce Lee Fans” film, as legendary actor John Saxon and Bolo Yeung team up for the first time in 40 years since their classic duo with Bruce Lee in “Enter The Dragon.”
Saxon joins the cast in a quorum of a wild bunch of raw talented American film nominees! Negotiations for the legendary ensemble cast are under way — from Dreyfuss to Dern, to Railsback to Keitel and Mickey Rooney, are names under consideration. The Film will star two young lead actors as Eric and Ty, in the film noir about betting on horses and on life.
Writer/director Matthew D. McClure (“Julio”) will produce with Lalesha Railsback (“The Mondavi Gang”) and Barrett Leigh (Production Coordinator on “The Fast and The Furious” and “Knocked Up”). “There will be no shortage of great production talent on this film. No effects. No CGI. Just a first rate cast of past Film Nominees, plus a stellar screenplay which will reach out to all audiences, worldwide,” stated Jackleyn Giroux, who helmed the deal for Global Universal Entertainment.
