Jonathan Lipnicki produced drama Broken Roads gets foreign distribution

Fleur De Lis Film Studios has snared the foreign distribution rights to Crevice Entertainment and director Justin Chambers acclaimed new feature film “Broken Roads”.

The drama, which boasts “Jerry Maguire” and “Stuart Little” star Jonathan Lipnicki as one of its producers, is the heartwarming story of a young man who, after a car accident that claims the life of his mother, is forced to live with his grandmother.

Says writer/producer/director Chambers : “The acquisition of Broken Roads for foreign sales by Fleur De Lis Film Studios just made sense, their strong business, moral and work ethic, matched with their integrity mirrors what Crevice Entertainment stands for, making for a perfect match that we are certain will span longer than the path of these Broken Roads…”

Julia Davis, Senior Vice President of Fleur Des Lis Film Studios, says : “Fleur De Lis Film Studios is proud to have acquired foreign distribution rights to the feature film “Broken Roads”. This is an inspiring drama, starring Oscar-nominated actress Sally Kirkland and produced by Jonathan Lipnicki of “Jerry Maguire” and “Stuart Little”. Incidentally, CEO of Fleur De Lis Film Studios, John D. Schofield, produced “Jerry Maguire”. “Broken Roads” now connects all of us in a new and exciting way. This powerful film will stimulate the audiences intellectually and touch them on a deep emotional level.”

“Broken Roads” stars Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe Winner Sally Kirkland (“Anna”), Aidan Bristow (“Alpha Must Die”), Shoshana Bush (“Dance Flick”) and Ross Marquand (“A Lonely Place for Dying”).

Producers are Jonathan Lipnicki (“Jerry Maguire”), William Alexander IV, and Karina Diaz.

“Broken Roads” is garnering great reviews online (this one at The Huffington Post singing it’s praises considerably) so we look forward to seeing it on our shores.

Some of Fleur De Lis Film Studios other films include the upcoming “Britt”, “Love.. Another Four Letter Word”, Tom Sizemore starrer “Remnants”, supernatural romance “Bristled”, Gary Daniels-starring mercenary actioner “Blackwater”, and the acclaimed documentary “Top Priority : The Terror Within”, which was released this week on DVD (buy here).

The Government, the Whistleblower and the Hollywood Starlet: Why a New Documentary Blames U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Brittany Murphy’s Death

When Brittany Murphy died back in 2009, many believed the actress’s abuse of prescription drugs and historic eating disorders were to blame. But now a controversial documentary claims her demise was far more sinister.

Top Priority: The Terror Within tells the alleged true story of how Brittany was caught up in a government plot against a national security whistleblower.

Another conspiracy theory you may think but after speaking to the whistleblower and filmmaker Julia Davis the accusation does not seem so outlandish.

Docu-Drama “Top Priority: The Terror Within” Comes to Santa Monica’s AMC 7

BEVERLY HILLS, CA, Oct 26 (Marketwire) –
Fleur De Lis Film Studios announced that its award-winning feature
documentary “Top Priority: The Terror Within” will open the American Film
Market with the screening at the AMC 7 in Santa Monica, CA on October 31,
2012 at 3PM. The film premiered at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and
Sciences on May 16, 2012 and is now being offered to domestic and
international buyers for the first time at the AFM.

“Top Priority: The Terror Within” addresses the growing terror threat on
the Southwestern border, an unpopular reality that continues to be
underplayed by government officials. This zeal to cover-up ongoing
failures by the Department of Homeland Security culminated into a
Blackhawk helicopter raid of the whistleblower’s home. As the Special
Response Team stormed the residence with more agents than the manpower
used to assault Bin Laden’s compound, a neighbor filmed these events.
Only weeks later, he was found dead. Four witness deaths illuminate this
incredible true story.

In an unexpected twist, the documentary also provides a glimpse into the tormented last days of actress Brittany Murphy. Her participation as a witness, unwittingly dragged into this paramount scandal, resulted in terrifying consequences for both Brittany and her husband Simon Monjack.

Martin Sheen and Woody Harrelson set for 9/11 ‘truther’ film September Morn

Hollywood is to court controversy with a film that will challenge the official version of the events of 9/11, a previously taboo topic for the industry mainstream. Martin SheenWoody Harrelson and Ed Asner, who have all supported conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks, have signed up to the movie, which is entitled September Morn.

Styling itself as a drama in the tradition of Twelve Angry Men, the film’s advance publicity note hints at a cover-up, saying: “We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 911.”

Details of the film, which is to be directed by BJ Davis and written by Howard Cohen, are expected to be revealed at an American Film Market conference in Los Angeles next week, Deadline.com reported.

The production has been set up by Fleur de Lis Film Studios, which has also made the documentary A Noble Lie, about the Oklahoma City bombing, and Operation: Dark Heart, a feature based on an intelligence agent’s memoirs.

Until now Hollywood has steered clear of claims that the Bush administration, or other elements in the government, may have been behind the 9/11 attacks, in which hijacked passenger planes crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennslyvania. The fourth plane was apparently en route to the Capitol.
