— the real life Les Grossman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Producer Les Grossman and Executive Producer Robert Taleghany are excited to announce the TV pilot "REEL: The Les Is More Show" is in development. Creation of this series was inspired by Tom Cruise’s portrayal of the over the top concert/movie producer Les Grossman. Tropic Thunder starring Tom Cruise, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Matthew McConaughey among others was produced by Ben Stiller and released August 13, 2008.

"Tom Cruise’s character, Les Grossman is brilliantly portrayed,” said the real life Les Grossman.

The historical real-time genesis of the character is at age 21 (May 25, 1969 a few months prior to Woodstock) in Columbia, Maryland. Real Les Grossman made US rock and roll history by co-billing Led Zeppelin and the Who on the same concert stage the only time that happened in the USA. People to this day claim that show as the greatest concert of their life per Led Zeppelin's website. Les also co-created (with super guitarist Ron Culbertson and score director of this project) country rock band Tractor. That instant superstar group did the soundtrack for David Lynch’s first American Film Institute movie "Grandmother". Les Grossman, Ron Culbertson and David Lynch were fraternity brothers during their school boy days.

Tropic Thunder is the iconic movie about actors involved in the making of a big-budget war movie. While filming on set in Thailand, they inadvertently get entangled with real life terrorists instead of other actors. Tom Cruise portrays the intense, somewhat overweight, profanity-spewing, balding producer Les Grossman.

In this series, real Les Grossman plays himself as Dad of mogul Les Grossman.

The man with the moves, super Jewish rapper Eitan G, is casted as mogul Les Grossman. Best friend superstar Rabbi Weiss’s amazingly talented son actor Mo Weiss is the school kid, 21-year old Les Grossman. Gorgeous Jennette McCurdy is in mind for the lead female role. While super television stars Robert Leeshock, DB Sweeney and film star, Australian heartthrob Marco De Rango are candidates for supporting male roles. Four-time Oscar nominated David Lynch is in mind to play himself in a future episode with the goal of finally winning an Emmy. In the meantime, the role of David at age 17 is still open. While, but of course, there’s an open invitation for Tom Cruise to do a walk-on.

The pilot is a carefully executed combination of faction and fiction. Thus, historical facts and events are cleverly fused with imagined ones. Such analogy and reality complement the show’s goal of subliminally improving the world. This project has a promising premise with its philosophy of perpetual betterment.

The Pilgrim's Progress – Coming to Theaters This Easter

New CGI Animated Version of the Beloved Story to be Translated into Dozens of Languages to Support Missions Worldwide

MCKINNEY, TX, USA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In recent years, faith-based films have proven to be the most effective tool for sharing the essential truths of Christianity worldwide. Classic stories that stand the test of time have the unique power to break down barriers of age, race, nationality, and language. Revelation Media and Cat in the Mill Studios understands this fact, and are preparing to bring the most popular Christian novel of all time – THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS – to U.S. theaters Easter 2019. The film will be shown April 18 and April 20, distributed through Fathom Events.

The first novel written in English, The Pilgrim's Progress has never been out of print and has sold more copies than any Christian book, next to the Bible. Written in 1678 by John Bunyan while in prison for holding religious services, The Pilgrim's Progress is often cited as the greatest allegory ever written.

The 2019 film will be the story’s feature-length theatrical debut, as well as the first CGI animated telling of the timeless tale. Media-driven families can be assured that this centuries-old story can still connect with viewers of all ages.

“More than any other story (outside the Bible), The Pilgrim's Progress has been used to inspire and challenge Christians to set their eyes on God,” explains Executive Producer Steve Cleary. “It has been translated into 200 languages and is known around the world. We are thrilled to offer this tale to a new generation through CGI animation, and are confident that the timeless themes of faith – such as hope, persecution, persistence, doubt, hardships – will resonate in a whole new way.”

Revelation Media is unique in its commitment to creating projects that can first and foremost serve as an asset to missionaries around the globe. Several early scenes from the project were paid for specifically through the film’s Kickstarter campaign, where over 1600 backers gave nearly $150,000 for the completion of the project. This crowdfunding, as well as the support of generous ministry partners including American Family Association, allows Revelation Media to fund the distribution of the film to those working on the mission field.

The Revelation Media team has already targeted the first 20 languages for the film to be re-cut with voices from native speakers. This opens the door for the film to impact restricted nations where the preaching of the Gospel is prohibited and Christians often find persecution. These translations of the film will be donated to missionaries and pastors at no cost and will find a potential audience of over 3 billion people.

After the English-language version of the film is complete, the next target is for the film to be aired on the second largest TV network in Iran. Paralleling the US theatrical events on Easter weekend, over 6 million Iranian citizens will experience The Pilgrim's Progress in their native Farsi.

The team has also already begun the film’s translation into Mandarin and Spanish. Ultimately, the vision is for The Pilgrim's Progress film to be available to viewers speaking over 100 different languages.

Cleary continues, “I have had the honor to visit with persecuted Christians in nearly 40 nations. In each of these countries, The Pilgrim's Progress was known and was an inspiration to Believers. I personally connect with this story on many levels. It is an honor to be producing the first version of this classic masterpiece in CGI animation, and to share its truths in theaters in the USA and around the world.”

The Pilgrim's Progress will be in theaters around the country on April 18 at 7:00pm and April 20 at 12:55pm local time. Tickets for The Pilgrim's Progress are already for sale through Fathom Events or at http://pilgrims.movie.

Matt Mattero Ministries and Impressions to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CARBONDALE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Music is the universal language. It transcends all people, generations, cultures and religions. Music is the perfect vehicle to connect with our spirituality. When a song reaches you when you need it most, it’s like going to heaven.

Musician and impressionist Matt Mattero can impersonate over 100 actors and singers, recontextualizing contemporary rock, pop, reggae, country and folk songs for Christian and secular audiences. Some have even likened Mattero to a “Gospel Weird Al.” He also can impersonate cartoons, do sound effects, use different dialects, emulate various instruments as well such as drums, bass, guitars, strings, trumpets and horn sections, vocoder, wah-wah pedal, lead guitars, flute, recorder, organ, and synthesizers. He also writes commercials, jingles, movie soundtracks, he does voice overs, and also is a keynote motivational speaker, webmaster, graphic artist, audio and video producer, director and paralegal.

“I love to wow people with my impressions and my music,” says Mattero. “I reel them in through my impressionsm, then I hit them with the Gospel and they get saved by the Holy Spirit.”

Mattero says God called him to his ministry from his previous career in law of 23 years. Today, Mattero’s ministry boasts quite a following; more than 400,000 people have come to know Christ through Mattero’s 28 albums and his raucous performances.

“I wanted to be an attorney, but God called me into ministry instead and that's what I've been doing ever since and loving it!” says Mattero.

A classically-trained concert pianist from age seven, he can play not only classical music but also jazz, pop, rock, reggae, country and folk music styles. Today Mattero can play 14 different instruments some well or others not too well. These instruments include chromatic harmonica, regular harmonica, jaw harp, bass, timpani, saxophone, clarinet, drums, recorder, oboe, piano, organ, synthesizers and 2 more. Blessed with absolute perfect pitch. Mattero can listen to any song on the radio, walk over to his piano and play it or sing it. He has a seven-octave range and can sing like many famous gospel and secular artists both women and men vocalists. Ever prolific, Mattero says it's not unusual for him to write 10 songs in one day.

“I never attended Juilliard or any of the schools as i absolutely despised and hated college, except for getting my paralegal diploma. I learned everything with hands on technology as he stated, if you do not use it you will lose it and that is why I remember everything I know each and every day” says Mattero, “but my piano teacher told me I was going to make it as a concert pianist like Oscar Levant. She put me right up there with him and Liberace.”

Mattero can preach with fire and brimstone one moment then launch into a singular rendition of “Come on Jesus, Light My Fire,” a parody of the Doors hit or sing like gospel artists the late Keith Green, Steve green, or Carman Licciardello.

“We're going to set the world on fire for Jesus. I preach from His word. God just leads me to work,” says Mattero. “When I think about all the talents that He has manifested in me, it blows my mind. I give God all the glory because it's all about Him and not about me. He alone is worthy. and He has me exactly where He wants me to be, proclaiming His name to millions of people worldwide.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Matt Mattero in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on January 18th at 4pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Paul David Pope: I feel the world needs saving, now more than ever!

Three generations of Popes

Paul David Pope

The legitimate press is currently under attack.

Whosoever shall destroy a soul, it shall be as if he has destroyed the entire world. But whosoever saves a life, it is considered the saving of an entire world.”

— Paul David Pope

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — I am thrilled to report that I am quoted in this awesome article written by Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times!
The National Enquirer has taken a much different direction since my father stood at the helm. His legacy was built upon uncovering the truths buried within every story that floods the media of our country. One memorable example is when we broke the Gary Hart story. That’s when the mainstream media really started paying attention.
I have a lot of content that I will be releasing in the near future. Between my grandfather, my father, and me, there are many interesting stories to tell.
I am sure my father’s intention with his media empire was not to be used after his passing as an outlet for “Fake News” If he was still alive the true, verifiable stories would be endless. If someone revealed the real untold stories, people would be shocked and horrified.
Transparency and accountability are super important, especially for people in the position of power. No one should be above the law.
The legitimate press is currently under attack. The basis of democracy is reliant on the freedom of the press. Society as a whole relies on information to be unbiased and unfiltered. Without the press, this is not possible. I am very concerned about the direction our world is going in.
I can’t be one of the people on the sidelines not doing anything. I feel the world needs saving, now more than ever!

Dan “Tito” Davis Completes the First Seven Continent Book Tour with Antarctica Signing

Dan “Tito” Davis bio picture

Gringo audiobook cover

Dan "Tito" Davis might be the first author to hold a book signing on all seven continents

The exciting part of my seven continent world tour for my book was the interesting people I met, and the excitement they had for my book "Gringo"”

— Dan "Tito" Davis

SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dan “Tito” Davis is the award-winning bestselling author of the book "Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive" and just finished his final seven continent book signing tour in Antarctica this month. Davis has been promoting his book and his message of growth through adversity after being released from a 10-year prison incarceration following 13 years on the run from the US government. Davis is one of the first, if not the only author, to do a book signing tour across all seven continents. Along his way, Davis also had a private audience with and presented a copy of his book to the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, India

Davis has traveled around the world promoting his book, starting his seven-continent tour with a book signing in Hong Kong and then continuing through to Antarctica this month. His full tour included the following locations:

1. Hong Kong, Asia, December 21, 2017

2. Cape Town, South Africa, February 22, 2018

3. Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 23, 2018

4. Frankfort, Germany, July 29, 2018

5. Sydney, Australia, September 14, 2018

6. Key West, Florida, USA November 1, 2018

7. Port Lockroy, Antarctica, January 4, 2019

Dan “Tito” Davis comes from a town in South Dakota so small that everyone knows their neighbor’s cat’s name. After attending Black Hills State University in South Dakota, he transferred to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and began manufacturing White Crosses, aka legal speed pills, and soon had the Bandidos motorcycle club distributing ten million tablets a week.

After serving five years of a 102-month prison sentence for tax evasion he could no longer fly for the airlines, his airline transport pilot license was revoked because of his conviction. Being a convicted felon, he was also denied a Nevada real estate license. After striking out on his first two job endeavors, he decided to contact the Colombian friends he had made in prison and began selling marijuana. After he began distributing marijuana, he was set up on a false methamphetamine charge by a childhood friend facing his own drug charges. Facing thirty years, Davis slipped into Mexico, not knowing a word of Spanish. He became Tito and began a thirteen-year odyssey that led him to an underground hideout for a Medellin cartel in Colombia; through the jungles of the Darien Gap, the world’s most dangerous passageway; being interrogated in Cuba, and much more. In 2007 Davis was unlawfully renditioned from Venezuela and returned to the United States where he was convicted of fleeing his original charge and parole violations, but not for the wrongful methamphetamine charge.

During his ten-year prison sentence, Dan “Tito” Davis penned a 700-page manuscript, which chronicled his life on the run from the United States federal government. While living in a halfway house in Wyoming, Davis met with writer Peter Conti and quickly tapped him to “write his story the right way.” For a year the two worked diligently to turn Davis’s raw material into an action-packed memoir called “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive.”

The audiobook of “Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive” as well as the ebook are currently available on Amazon and at http://gringobook.com. Visit Dan “Tito” Davis’s Wikipedia page for more information about him. He can be contacted at dantitodavis@gmail.com

Tom Cruise’s Character Les Grossman in the Movie Tropic Thunder Comes Alive, TV Spin Off – REEL: The Les is More Story

Adapted to a Television Series, REEL: The Les is More Story will Explore the High Powered Talent Mogul, the REAL Les Grossman

Tom Cruise’s character in Tropic Thunder, Les Grossman is simply brilliant.”

— Les Grossman, Producer of REEL: The Les is More Story.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The REAL Les Grossman and Executive Producer Robert Taleghany are excited to announce that currently in the pipeline – REEL: The Les is More Story spin-off TV Series is now being planned. The TV series is heavily inspired by Tom Cruise’s portrayal of a petulant and pejorative loving movie producer Les Grossman in the 2008 hit movie, “Tropic Thunder” directed by Ben Stiller staring Stiller, Cruise, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Matthew McConaughey and many more.

Tropic Thunder is a movie about a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie who are forced to become the soldiers they are depicting by getting involved in a real life military action drug war in Thailand. In the movie, Tom Cruise plays Les Grossman, the overweight, profanities spewing and balding studio executive who is financing the film.
“Tom Cruise’s character in Tropic Thunder, Les Grossman is simply brilliant”, said Grossman, Hollywood Talent Mogul and Producer of REEL: The Les is More Story.

Executive producer, Taleghany is organizing the finances while producer REAL Grossman is negotiating with the state of Nevada and Clark County to do the 2019 production in Las Vegas. Freddy Krepistmah of Freddy K Entertainment is the casting director and Ron Culbertson will be directing the score as an assistant director.

Over a decade after its release, Tropic Thunder’s appeal has not, by any means gone down – if any, it has only escalated. At present, Etan G, a Jewish rapper with the moves is cast as Les Grossman. This episode of REEL: The Les is More Story rewinds back to the time when Les Grossman was a teen looking for a chance to get his big break and make a name for himself. It is the genesis of REAL Les Grossman and the historic element that will be present in the Pilot Episode. Some past examples about the REAL Grossman are: Being the only United States concert producer to put the bands The Who and Led Zeppelin on the same concert stage. Plus, the REAL Grossman co-created the band Tractor with Ron Culbertson, who then did the sound track for David Lynch’s first film for AFI, The Grandmother.

The character is then molded gradually into what the REAL Les Grossman is in the movie Tropic Thunder, rocking Hollywood by being a high powered talent mogul. However, there is more along the line. The REAL Les Grossman (now transformed as an 18-year student of Kabbalah) will play Les Grossman’s dad.

The lead female role was written with Jennette McCurdy in mind as Dottee Smythe, Grossman’s mom (in her teenage years) along with television star Robert Leeshock in mind for the roll of Studio Head Ren Stickler. The REAL Les Grossman at the age of 21 years old, will be played by a new and upcoming Las Vegas actor who is known for his ear to ear grin. Pending staring rolls for Marco De Rango along with D. B. Sweeney are also in the works.

Another exciting highlight about the Pilot Episode is that Tom Cruise has an open invitation for a cameo role.
REEL: The Les is More Story, is an emerging seed – a new story is birthed and continued in the past and future story building, in true series fashion. In an evolution in itself, this action/comedy romp is a cleverly combination blend of fact and fiction. There is enough grit, drama, excitement and ridiculous antics to keep viewers hooked and wanting more.

Biography of a Teacher Extraordinaire

FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey

Katzen’s trajectory is cinematically adventurous, … the twine that holds together its diverse parts, tenderly captured by Simmonds, is her calling to be a teacher.”

— Kirkus review

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — This new book is a captivating and deeply researched biography of Zenaida Katzen, a master of foreign language instruction who embraced a comprehensive approach to teaching. Simmonds was a student of Katzen's in the 1960s on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. After his retirement from 25 years with the New York City public school system as a teacher and administrator, he was compelled to learn all he could about the special woman who inspired him to become an educator.

When she arrived in St. Kitts in 1961 to teach French and Spanish to teenagers (mostly boys), Zenaida Katzen (Zina) had already lived an extraordinary life in Siberia, China, France and Chile. What Simmonds uncovered during his five years of painstaking research is the complex story of a dynamic, driven, independent woman who dedicated her life to education and advancing the lives of children.

Zina Katzen wasn't simply a French teacher or a Spanish teacher – she was an educator who believed in providing students with an experience while they were learning. In St. Kitts, she organized activities and programs outside the classroom, and was able to secure funding from a wealthy friend in China who supported her work. A chapter of Simmonds' book includes letters between Zina and her benefactor, offering a unique perspective into how Zina carefully managed the financial, educational and extracurricular needs of her students, and revealing a more personal side of Zina – an animal lover who was devoted to her mother and aunt, both of whom lived with her in St. Kitts.

Simmonds' story is beautifully written, thorough and includes photos of Zina, her students, friends, family and the places where she lived and taught. Thoughtfully placed throughout the narrative are French phrases and words, which contribute to the cadence of the story, and lend authenticity to its message.

Simmonds spent five years on a research journey traveling to Chile, Hong Kong, Shanghai, St. Kitts and France researching the life of this teacher extraordinaire who profoundly touched the lives of an untold number of students in China, Chile and the Caribbean.
