Alliance Group Entertainment Wraps Production On "Confessions Of A Pit Fighter" Staring Armand Assante, John Savage, James Russo, Hector Echavarria, Giselle DÂ?Cole, and Flava Flav

Alliance Group Entertainment recently completed production on “Confessions Of A Pit Fighter”—a gritty, edgy, fight drama that uncovers the devastatingly poignant and gruesome society of underground street fighting in East Los Angeles. “Confessions Of A Pit Fighter”, characterized as a cross between “Fight Club” and “Million Dollar Baby”, is a brutally realistic and character driven film that will have movie goers on the edge of their seats.

“Not unlike what ‘The Fast and the Furious’ did for illegal underground street racing, ‘Confessions Of A Pit Fighter’ will expose the mysterious and dangerous world of high stakes street fighting,” says writer/producer R. Ellis Frazier. “Not too many people know about the pit fighting circuit; it’s 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.”

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. “Confessions Of A Pit Fighter” takes the audience through a man’s 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 Castillo’s journey, and in the end, the lessons learned save him from both the street and from himself.

“Confessions Of A Pit Fighter”, 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 Echavarría (Eddie Castillo), and features an all star cast led by Emmy Award® winner Armand Assante (Argento), Academy Award® Nominee John Savage (McGee), veteran actor James Russo (Sharkey), Latin Pop Star Giselle D’Cole (Gizelle), and making his on screen debut, multi-platinum recording artist, Flava Flav (Lucky). Also featured are Ultimate Fighting Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champions Rigan & Jigan Machado.

“This film deals with real human drama based on a true story,” says executive producer Mike Karkeh, “that’s what drew me to the script. It’s about trials, not giving up, and redemption. And people in those situations are people just like us.” With a character-driven story line and mind-blowing fight sequences, “Confessions Of A Pit Fighter” is one of the must-see fight dramas of the year.
