MUMBAI: Global Entertainment Acquisition Corporation has completed the first sceenplay of what it expects to be a franchise comedy currently titled Brand Dead.
The creative was completed recently and approved by the company’s CEO Maurice Smith. The announcement comes on the heels of several positive movements by the entertainment company recently including the acquisition of several comedy properties, as well the announcement of the commencement of pre production on Smith’s sci fi super hero flick Spiderella.
"We believe Brand Dead is going to change the comedy landscape. This style of comedy is the future of comedy, in my opinion, because it mirrors our cultural preferences in terms of short attention spans and instant gratification. I am passionate about this project and believe that we are going to have a hugely successful franchise," says Smith.
The company also announced that it has developed the outline and has begun to write the sequel, currently titled Brand Dead: Going Number 2. Smith sees opportunity in a difficult economy, and believes that his movies are essential coping vehicles in trying times. "It is widely known and was just reported on National news, that when times are tough, entertainment, and specifically comedy and super hero action flicks prosper. Folks need an outlet, a diversion. We think our movies will provide that," he says.
