Global Entertainment’s Film Group To Produce “Purgatory”
A Feature Film Based On J. Costa’s Short Film And Recent Audiobook Release
Los Angeles, CA – July 18, 2016 – Global Universal Film Group, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Entertainment Holdings (OTC: GBHL), has announced the acquisition of the rights to J. Costa’s psychological horror/thriller “Purgatory” for production as a feature-length, motion picture.
J. Costa’s “Purgatory” features “Dave”, a serial killer with heart, whose dispensation to discuss his nature while reflecting upon his sins, seems to relish in the beauty of his control over life and death. Adding to this chilling scenario is the sheer horror experienced by his still living captives, who bear witness to his confession.
“Purgatory” was an Official Selection at the Cannes International Film Festival; won Best Horror Short at the New York International Film Festival; and Best Short Film, Audience Choice Awards.
Jackelyn Giroux, President of Global Universal Film Group, who will shepherd the production of this film, commented, “J. Costa’s extraordinary talent in conceiving, writing, directing and then bringing the characters to life on the screen, can only be described as visionary. It deserves the big canvas of a fulllength feature film, where the result will simply terrify you!”
J. Costa stated, “Words can’t begin to express my excitement regarding the partnership between Global Entertainment and myself. The expertise and creativity that Jackie Giroux and the rest of the Global team bring to a project like Purgatory is second to none. By bringing the characters Dave, Judas and Mya to life (from the pages of the book Purgatory), it is our hope that their story, their lives and the controversial events that created them, will not only resonate with audiences on a “human” level, but will also unnerve people in a fashion that will allow them to see the world around themselves in a very different light.”
In addition, the film plans to make use of a unique and innovative new crowd promotion and online casting platform, “You’ve Got the Part,” currently being developed by Global Entertainment. You’ve Got the Part (© 2014 and TM2013), allows anyone desiring to have a role in this film the ability to audition via their cell phone, tablet or web cam, with winners being selected by the number of “Likes” on various social media websites.
Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Entertainment, added, “As in all of our film projects, we want to add value for both the audience and our shareholders. In this way, we are confident that “Purgatory” will be entertaining, as well as profitable.”
