Owned Entertainment Announces Updates For MMA Movie 'Owned'

Courtesy of Owned Entertainment, Inc.:

(01/17/2008) AUSTIN, Texas -- Owned Entertainment, Inc. has announced today several updates for the MMA Movie 'Owned.' Prior to the holiday season, Owned Entertainment was present at the North American Mixed Martial Arts Expo and the event was a great success for the company. UFC and MMA legend Don Frye was on hand signing autographs at the Owned booth while auditions were being held. Owned president James Hergott was on hand as was Executive Producer Tarquin Gotch (Home Alone, Curly Sue). Several pictures from the expo have been posted from 43 to 52 under the capture section of ownedentertainment.com.

Shortly after the expo Owned Entertainment CEO Eric Alfio, Mr. Hergott, and Mr. Gotch met and agreed upon a progressive short-term and long-term strategy for the company. It was decided that Mr. Gotch would be deeper involved in the production and distribution of the "Owned" movie. Mr. Gotch and Mr. Hergott will be working together on extensive story rewrites in order to increase the available roles for MMA fighters, add in product placement, and simplify the production schedule. This will allow for the inclusion of more MMA fighters as well as MMA companies in the movie. Mr. Hergott comments; "There are several MMA movies in development and production right now. It is our goal to come out with something truly unique and entertaining. With that in mind we will be keeping a lot of our plans under wraps. We are really excited about our story revisions and future company plans." Owned Entertainment will continue casting while working on project improvements and partnerships.
