"IN LIKE FLYNN" Stars / Writers / Producers Luke Flynn and Corey Large in Los Angeles to Meet and Greet the Press

Model / Actor Flynn Will Portray His Grandfather, Hollywood Icon Errol Flynn With Large to Co-Star and Produce for Wingman Productions

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 7, 2005 -- Luke Flynn, 30-year-old grandson of movie icon Errol Flynn and one of the industry's top male models, and actor-writer-producer Corey Large are in Los Angeles and available to meet with accredited members of the media now through Wednesday, November 9 on behalf of their upcoming film, "IN LIKE FLYNN." Luke will star as his famed grandfather, with Large, who also co-stars, writing and co-producing through his own independent production company, Wingman Productions, together with Alan Pao, Farouk Hadef and Shimon Arama ("Triumph of the Spirit," "Warriors," "Eminent Domain" and "Black Eagle").

The biopic depicts Flynn's roust-about early life in Australia, before he became an internationally famed celebrity. In those days he was an adventurer, opium smuggler, gambler, street fighter, womanizer, and gold prospector. The film, based on Flynn's early autobiography "Beam Ends," was written for the screen by Large and Luke Flynn, who found the inspiration as a result of their travels through Australia in the footsteps of Luke's iconic grandfather. Film production will start next July in Australia with a budget of $12 million. The book's title refers to the last visible sign before a ship sinks.

"In Like Flynn" will be Luke Flynn's second starring role, following his film debut in the romantic comedy "Window Theory." "Window Theory," the first independent film from Wingman Productions, was written and produced by Large, who also stars in it. Luke, who bears a striking resemblance to his legendary grandfather, was featured in the 2003 People Magazine "25 Hottest Bachelors" issue. He has worked as a model for Tommy Hilfiger, Armani, Versace and Coach, among others.

Canadian-born Corey Large has produced, written and starred in "Chasing Ghosts," to be released on DVD through Sony, with Michael Madsen, Gary Busey, Shannon Sossamon and Meat Loaf, and the horror-thriller "Toxic," with Susan Ward which goes into production mid-November, as well as "Window Theory." He is currently working on his fourth film, "High Life." Luke and Corey Large are also writing a script about Sean Flynn, Luke's uncle and Errol's son, a famous photojournalist in Vietnam who vanished in Cambodia, presumably executed by the Khmer Rouge.
