New York, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2004
Taking a bold stand against gun-violence, with the support of several celebrities, Gigagroove Productions (Producers) is shooting the first "official anti gun violence movie", called Gun Lordz. The movie is presently in preproduction (in New York) while shooting of this 90 minute feature begins on August 22, 2004. Cast members (and crew) from Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island, Teaneck, and other parts of the East Coast are involved in Gun Lordz.
Scriptwriter, Jimmy Curry, states that the powerful message in Gun Lordz will resonate throughout many communities. "Gun violence is increasing at alarming rates in America and indeed the world. Rather than glorify guns, we decided to make a movie that simultaneously entertains viewers while spreading a strong message to youth and adults alike! As a survivor of violent attacks, I take this matter seriously." In addition to having a stellar cast (actors who have appeared in most networks), music on the Gun Lordz soundtrack is a unique blend of Classical, Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop, Junkanoo, Reggae, R&B, Reggaeton, Rock, Salsa and Gospel will be featured. The soundtrack is purposefully a mix of various forms of music to expand the listening horizons of several demographics, from Hip Hop heads, to Classical and Jazz Fans, etc.
At present a Grammy Award winner is negotiating with the Gun Lordz producers. Additionally, The Tarumi Violinists, who have been featured at the United Nations, White House (Washington) and around the world, will have songs featured in the Gun Lordz Soundtrack. These classical violinists will add their well-known touch during post-production, which begins in November, 2004.
The fight scenes were originally to be choreographed by Grandmaster Ron Van Clief. But after some careful evaluation of the Grandmaster's choreography, Jimmy Curry (who is trained at martial arts) paid the Grandmaster, then did the scene choreography himself. M. Baptis, Co-Executive Producer of Gun Lordz, stated recently during an interview, "If positive people and business entities do not start to support positive movie releases, none of us can complain when the rate of gun violence increases exponentially. I have seen enough gun violence in my community, so decided to put my money where my mouth was."
Jimmy Curry said, "Until we build more pride in young persons, spend quality time with them, and educate them about their responsibilities in our world community, gun violence will continue to end lives."
The American Gun Lordz movie premiere is slated for 2007 in New York City with DVD and television releases to follow. Gun Lordz will be released in the following languages: Arabic, Creole, Dravidian, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Spanish, Swahali, Vietnamese and Zulu.
