JOHN LANDIS ATTACHED TO DIRECT GHOULISHLY YOURS, WILLIAM M. GAINES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Press Release

John Landis ("National Lampoon's Animal House," "The Blues Brothers," "Masters of Horror") has been attached to direct the authorized feature biopic, "Ghoulishly Yours, Wiliam M. Gaines." Landis will develop the project with Joel Eisenberg, who is penning the screenplay based on the life of the titular EC Comics' publisher ("Tales from The Crypt," "Mad Magazine" et. al.).

Pic will revolve around the banding together of an anti-establishment group of artists and writers, led by a reluctant Gaines and cohort Al Feldstein, as they produce their controversial yet hugely popular line of comic books. At the peak of his success Gaines becomes an unwitting First Amendment figurehead, defending his livelihood against the U.S. government amidst accusations of perpetuating juvenile delinquency.

Landis most recently helmed "Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project" for HBO.

Eisenberg is a partner in production concern EMO Films, LLC with Tim Owens and Eugene Mandelcorn.

Project is authorized by William M. Gaines Agent, Inc.
