Toronto, Canada - A worldwide talent hunt is underway in 48 countries for five special action heroes to star in a multi-national co-production titled Good Guys, International.
Toronto-based Veni Vici Entertainment Inc. is approaching potential co-producers in these countries which have co-production treaties with Canada. The film will be the antithesis of Hollywood's contemporary concept of action-adventure.
The action heroes from different countries on different continents will have four things in common: They are music lovers; are filled with joie de vivre, they all speak a little bit of English, and they love to party. They never seem to get angry. Even when having to destroy nasty terrorists, they do it with joy, a smile, and a twinkle in their eyes. They're reminiscent, perhaps, of the 'Rat Pack' of the '60s.
In the film, each hero is introduced in his own country about to depart to a famous music festival. Along the way, each encounters a life-threatening adventure and each shows us how well they handle themselves. At the festival they meet, become instant friends, and have a great time, making us wish we could join them.
Some terrorists appear and take as hostage an elderly billionaire. Our heroes, jump into action as if they'd been trained together. They defeat the bad guys and save the billionaire who is enormously grateful. He offers them financial backing and insists they work together in the future, each out of his own country but as international partners, as a parallel, perhaps, to Interpol. He baptizes them, "Good Guys, International."
Budgets of treaty co-productions with Canada totaled $440,000,000 in 2013 and 65% of this total consisted of co-productions with partners in the U.K. and France.
Andy Halmay, head of Veni Vici Entertainment, states, "We're reaching out to the world, to all countries who signed co-production treaties with Canada, in the hope of finding co-production partners from each of the continents to make "Good Guys, International" truly international.
Casting the Canadian action hero presents a problem. "We are so diverse," states Halmay, "It's hard to decide who would best be representative of Canada." If he had his choice, he would cast Prince Harry of England. "The Prince has exactly the look and personality we need for the 'Good Guys' in this film," he states.
Casting for the Latin 'Good Guy' will be done by whichever Spanish or Latin American producer becomes a co-producer on this film.For more information, contact Greg Spencer of Veni Vici Entertainment Inc. at 1-416-925-1271 or venivici(at)inbox.com.
