New Roddy Piper Film Production


A percentage of all sales go to Doernbecher Children's Hospital

On 31st July 2015 the world lost one of the most recognizable and successful wrestling personalities of all time, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. A new film production is now available to stream from Nine Legends director David Sinnott which features never before seen footage of "The Hot Rod" titled: "Roddy Piper: In His Own Words". Dig deep inside a forty year career which was spotlighted in the WWE and WCW as well as the big screen, including the lead role in John Carpenter's cult classic, "They Live".



David Sinnott: "This project meant a lot to me to put together. I have fond memories of working with Piper on another project and it didn't sit well with me that so much great footage was locked away in a vault. I recall his daughter was present for the entirety of our film shoot and it was clearly evident that he was a decent family man. It was important for me to connect with Roddy's wife, Kitty Toombs, for input on this project."

Kitty Toombs: "This is Roddy, candid, serious and at times laughing at himself as he digs into some of the psychology and experiences that propelled him in and out of the wrestling arena."

A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, a hospital which had a special place in Roddy's heart.

Kitty Toombs: "Roddy saw first hand during his decades in Portland, Oregon the groundbreaking, good work being done at the Doernbecher Children Hospital. Throughout the years he loved giving time volunteering as a celebrity during fundraisers but even more so, just stopping by to roam the halls and chat with the children. He shared with his family how those kids were the real heroes and what they gave him was far more than they ever realized."

Roddy Piper: In His Own Words is available to stream now at www.ninelegendsfilm.com for $7.99, which includes access to "Nine Legends", starring Bill Goldberg, Mike Tyson and Chris Jericho.

The Florida Project - New Trailer and Poster


THE FLORIDA PROJECT, one of the breakout hits of Cannes, has been set for a 10th November 2017 release date in the UK and Ireland, by distributor Altitude Film Distribution.

Directed by Sean Baker, and co-written with Chris Bergoch, The Florida Project is Baker’s follow up to his 2015 award winning feature Tangerine, which he also co-wrote with Bergoch. The Florida Project stars Willem Dafoe (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Murder on the Orient Express) and features standout performances from newcomers Bria Vinaite, Brooklynn Prince and Valeria Cotto.

The Florida Project tells the story of Moonee (Brookynn Prince), a precocious six-year- old and her ragtag group of friends.  The children’s summer break is filled with wonder, mischief and adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times.

The story takes place just outside of Orlando, the vacation capital of the world and home to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”  Along the main highway that runs through the land of theme parks and resorts, budget motels that once attracted tourists by exploiting the Disney mystique, now house homeless families.

Moonee and her twenty-two year old mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite), live at one such establishment — The Magic Castle Motel.  The closest thing Moonee has to a father is Bobby (Willem Dafoe), the motel’s manager, a guarded and diligent man who is taunted by the children’s antics.  Halley has lost her job and a new girl the same age as Moonee has moved in at the motel next door - it's going to be an eventful summer.

June Pictures presents A Cre Film & Freestyle Pictures Company Production. Produced by Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch, Kevin Chinoy, Andrew Duncan, Alex Saks, Francesca Silvestri, Shih-Ching Tsou and executive produced by Darren Dean.

Running time: 112min    Certificate: TBC

THE FLORIDA PROJECT will be released across the UK and Ireland by Altitude Film Distribution
on 10 November 2017.
