• Julian to produce and develop new movie "Funny Boys"

    How many of you know about the bestselling author Warren Adler? I have to confess I didn't, but when I read that he was the author to the novel that was turned into the movie "War of the Roses" (Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas & Danny DeVito) it sure rang a bell.

    As it turns out, Julian is apparently about to produce and develop a new movie from one of this author's novels; "Funny Boys" - along with Gray Eagle films and Charlie Loventhal, whom I guess he met while doing "Meet Market".

    How do we know all this? Well, we were contacted the other day (by e-mail) by the Communications Director for Warren Adler's company Stonehouse Productions, and he offered to send us the official press-release.

    Thank you so much to Mr. Steven Ramotar.

    Nedless to say, we are thrilled to post it here on our board.
