FREEDOM FILMS TO DELIVER THUNDER RUN

GERARD BUTLER, SAM WORTHINGTON & MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY’S UPCOMING EPIC ACTION PIC “THUNDER RUN” TO HAVE WIDE THEATRICAL RELEASE

FREEDOM FILMS PARTNERS WITH PARADOX ENTERTAINMENT TO FINANCE SIMON WEST DIRECTED CG 3-D FILM.

Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park to Handle International Sales.

Freedom Films CEO, Brian Presley is proud to announce the closing of a substantial domestic P&A financing arrangement days prior to Cannes for the CG 3-D action thriller “Thunder Run.” The film will be co-financed by Presley’s Freedom Films and CEO Fred Malmburg’s company, Paradox Entertainment with Gerard Butler, Sam Worthington and Matthew McConaughey starring. Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park International is handling sales at Cannes during the upcoming Marche du Film.

VFX production has already begun on the CG 3-D film with principal photography set to begin this Summer. Presley is producing alongside Jib Polhemus of The Graphic Film Company, with Simon West directing. “Thunder Run,” is an all CG 3-D action thriller based on the non-fiction book “Thunder Run - The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent David Zucchino. Adapting the story for the screen are Academy Award-winner Robert Port and Ken Nolan, screenwriter of “Black Hawk Down.”
“Thunder Run” is the untold story of the dangerous and bloody capture of Baghdad by American Forces at the onset of the Iraq War. In April 2003, three battalions and fewer than a thousand men launched a violent thrust of tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles into the heart of a city of five million, igniting a three-day blitzkrieg, which military professionals often refer to as a lightning strike, or “thunder run.” In telling the story of the surprise assault on Baghdad--one of the most decisive battles in recent American combat history--this movie paints the harrowing picture of the soldiers on the front lines and the realities of modern warfare.
Freedom Films is represented by Jay Cohen of the Gersh Agency.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
