Alliance Group Entertainment recently completed production on ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂÂa gritty, edgy, fight drama that uncovers the devastatingly poignant and gruesome society of underground street fighting in East Los Angeles. ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂ, characterized as a cross between ÂFight ClubÂ and ÂMillion Dollar BabyÂ, is a brutally realistic and character driven film that will have movie goers on the edge of their seats.
ÂNot unlike what ÂThe Fast and the FuriousÂ did for illegal underground street racing, ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂ will expose the mysterious and dangerous world of high stakes street fighting,Â says writer/producer R. Ellis Frazier. ÂNot too many people know about the pit fighting circuit; itÂs almost like a secret society. In this film we captured not only the violence of the fights, but also the desperation that drives these people to risk their lives for money in a sport like this.Â
The story is about Eddie Castillo, a man who fought desperately to leave his violent days of street fighting behind, and who is suddenly forced back into the grungy underworld of pit fighting after the death of his brother. ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂ takes the audience through a manÂs journey of searching for reasons to keep fighting, both literally and figuratively, in order to find an elusive peace and clarity in his life. Tragedy, triumph, love and evil weave their way through Eddie CastilloÂs journey, and in the end, the lessons learned save him from both the street and from himself.
ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂ, directed by world renowned director and fight choreographer Art Camacho and written by r. ellis frazier of Alliance Group Entertainment, stars World Martial Arts Champion, Hector EchavarrÃa (Eddie Castillo), and features an all star cast led by Emmy AwardÂ® winner Armand Assante (Argento), Academy AwardÂ® Nominee John Savage (McGee), veteran actor James Russo (Sharkey), Latin Pop Star Giselle DÂCole (Gizelle), and making his on screen debut, multi-platinum recording artist, Flava Flav (Lucky). Also featured are Ultimate Fighting Champion Quinton ÂRampageÂ Jackson and World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champions Rigan & Jigan Machado.
ÂThis film deals with real human drama based on a true story,Â says executive producer Mike Karkeh, ÂthatÂs what drew me to the script. ItÂs about trials, not giving up, and redemption. And people in those situations are people just like us.Â With a character-driven story line and mind-blowing fight sequences, ÂConfessions Of A Pit FighterÂ is one of the must-see fight dramas of the year.
