Empire Film Group Announces Completion of Filming for "Boilermaker"; Theatrical Release Pegged for May 2008

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 18, 2007) - Empire Film Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EFGU) is pleased to announce the completion of principal photography on the action-thriller "BOILERMAKER," starring Jack McGhee ("Crash"), Senta Moses ("Dodgeball") and Arie Vereen ("Sin City") in a stunning turn as the lead antagonist. The bank-heist thriller was shot in and around Los Angeles by CRC Productions under the direction of Paul T. Murray, along with producer T.J. Castronovo and executive producers Joseph D. Amore, Mike Carazza, and Empire Home Entertainment C.E.O. Eric Parkinson. The film is slated for release to theaters in the U.S. on May 9, 2008 by Empire Film Group.

"Boilermaker" was written by Murray, and tells the story of two bank robbers who inadvertently seek refuge from a police barricade by holding hostage a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. The colorful characters and tense circumstances are reminiscent of the classic "Dog Day Afternoon," transplanted into contemporary Los Angeles locations.

"I loved the script from the start," said Parkinson. "The situation, characters and dialogue are authentic and engaging, and the performances from the cast were superb. The film has exceeded all of our expectations, and I think it will be very popular with both audiences and critics," he concluded.

Other principal cast include Mike Rad ("The Nanny Diaries"), John Savage ("The New World") and Joey Diaz ("The Longest Yard"). Empire Film Group will premiere the film in May 2008 at the Cannes Film Festival, shortly before a USA key market theatrical release.
