FROM ECHO BRIDGE HOME ENTERTAINMENT
LA CROSSE, WI; June 29, 2009 – August 11th, 2009 will see the release of Echo Bridge Home Entertainment's DVD Lonely Street, featuring a hilarious all-star ensemble cast of Jay Mohr ("Gary Unmarried"), comedian Katt Williams, Lindsay Price ("Lipstick Jungle"), Robert Patrick ("The Unit"), Joe Mantegna ("Criminal Minds"), Nikki Cox ("Las Vegas"), Mike Starr ("Black Dynamite"), comedian Paul Rodriguez, and Ernie Hudson ("Dragonball: Evolution"). Based on the popular crime-comedy novel by Steve Brewer, Lonely Street follows inept PI Bubba Mabry (Mohr) as he takes on the case of his career—protecting a living Elvis from a tabloid reporter who's about to break the biggest scoop in rock and roll history! Lonely Street comes loaded with bonus features, including behind-the-scenes cast interviews; a "Making of Elvis" featurette, an inside look into Robert Patrick's transformation into a 70-year-old Elvis; and three exclusive songs by James Brown "The King," a world-renowned Elvis impersonator, including "When the Rebel Comes Home" music video. Lonely Street has quite the investor behind the scenes—Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. "Getting behind this film was a ton of fun. James Brown is awesome in 'When the Rebel Comes Home,' and hanging out with Robert Patrick in his Elvis get up was the closest I'll ever get to recording music with the King, something I'd have loved to do."
On Robert Patrick's transformation into The King of Rock n' Roll, producer Kevin Chapman says "Robert was remarkable in this film; he took Elvis to a whole new level. We were blessed to have Academy Award® winning makeup artist Tom Woodruff on set as well. The two working together was a phenomenal combination, and to see a spot-on Elvis was spectacular."
Lonely Street is priced to own at $19.99 SRP, and will be available at most major retailers, online retailers, and video-on-demand services in the United States and Canada. For more information about the film, visit www.lonelystreetthemovie.com.
Bumbling PI Bubba Mabry will take any assignment to pay the rent, so when J.G offers a bodyguard stint for some serious cash, Bubba's got it made…only he's protecting a living Elvis Presley from a sleazy tabloid columnist on the verge of landing the biggest scoop in rock and roll history. The case takes a wild twist when the reporter turns up dead, J.G. and Elvis go MIA, and Bubba is left as the prime suspect! Now, with Detective Romero and reporters Felicia and Bambi on his tail, Bubba has to solve the whodunit himself.
