CAMELOT DIVES INTO SUMMER WITH PATTERSON’S ‘POOLBOY’

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

DarKnight Pictures Obtains Worldwide Distribution Rights to Action Comedy Starring Kevin Sorbo and Danny Trejo

Universal City, CA – (July 15, 2010) Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CMGRD) (”Camelot”) announced today that Camelot Distribution Group and DarKnight Pictures have acquired the satirical comedy POOLBOY: DROWNING OUT THE FURY, for worldwide distribution.

A Common Thread Production, the film will be directed by Garrett Brawith and written and produced by Ross Patterson.  The cast includes Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys”, Meet the Spartans), Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators), and Robert LaSardo (Death Race, “Nip/Tuck).

Filming for ‘Poolboy’ begins July 19th, 2010.

Tortured by his past, Vietnam Veteran Sal Bando (Sorbo) returns home to Van Nuys, California, and a country he doesn’t recognize, in which it seems only minorities run pool-cleaning companies. Bando sets off on a brutal mission to reclaim his “rightful” vocation and enact revenge on the man who killed his wife and son.
