SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RegalWorks Media, Inc. (OTCMarkets & OTCBB: RWMI) today announced it has secured full financing for Jake's Run, its first feature film production. "We've reached terms with two private equity sources," said Dane West, RegalWorks CEO, "and we've set January 14th, 2014 as our start date for principal photography. This is the first in a slate of three new movies anticipated to be financed in the fourth quarter of 2013 and produced in 2014. We could not be more excited and this puts us well on the way to meet our projections for 2014."
"This movie is based on one of the most amazing true stories I've ever heard," said Adam Miller, president of Genesis Pictures, RegalWorks' production partner. "I believe audiences everywhere will enjoy it." Miller is set to direct and produce, along with Marina Martins, Jamie Miller and Bruce D. Johnson. Mitchell Galin is line producing. Executive Producers are Bill Friday and Barry Glasser. Joey Paul Jensen is co-executive producing, and providing casting services.

Jake's Run is based upon the true-life events of Jake Porter, who won ESPN's ESPY Award for the Most Inspirational Player in 2003. Jake has a severe form of autism known as "Fragile X Syndrome," but through his invincible courage and the steadfast determination of his mother, Jake breaks through the adversity and social prejudice of a small Ohio town and dramatically transforms the life of the football coach, winning the respect not only of those around him but of millions who thrilled to his astonishing victory as an athlete and a human being in events that were re-played on ESPN, YouTube and other social media. Jake was featured on ESPN, Sports Illustrated, USA Today and elsewhere.
Announcements regarding cast and distribution are expected soon. Jake's Run is scheduled to be filmed in North Carolina.
