Just think, if Ed Burns hadn’t of chosen to stay out of the big studio system with the film Nice Guy Johnny, shooting on a tight budget and forgoing a theatrical release; creating a better business model for independent filmmakers, Screenhead would never have held this giveaway!
Since we did hold the giveaway, we have our two winners: Marcy Strahan and Sara Heller! Congratulations to our two lucky winners!
The Nice Guy Johnny Prize Pack includes:
Signed Nice Guy Johnny poster by Ed Burns
Signed Nice Guy Johnny screenplay by Ed Burns
DVD of Nice Guy Johnny
Soundtrack from Nice Guy Johnny
Like I mentioned before, I would love to get my hands on the signed screenplay. What a treasure that would be! But, I can’t participate in the giveaway because I am sponsoring it. Alas!
I am posting the poster for Nice Guy Johnny, by the award-winning filmmaker, Ed Burns. A romantic comedy and coming-of-age story set in New York’s beautiful beach suburb of the Hamptons. Nice Guy Johnny features two rising stars Kerry Bishé and Matt Bush. The film has been garnering positive reviews and buzz since its premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival. The trailer will follow shortly.
The film will be released on October 26, 2010 via iTunes, VOD, DVD and other direct-to-consumer suppliers.
Sure, she can be a little overbearing sometimes, but baby-faced Johnny Rizzo loves his fiancee Claire, and he made her a promise: by the time he’s 25-years-old, he’ll trade his current dream job as a local sports talk radio host (even if it is the 2 a.m. slot) for something that’ll pay bigger bucks. And Johnny’s nothing, if not a man of his word.
Now he’s flying to New York to interview for some snoozeville job that Claire’s well-to-do father set up. Enter Uncle Terry, who lives in New York, a rascally womanizer bent on turning a day in the Hamptons into a final fling for his nephew. Nice guy Johnny’s not interested, of course, but then he meets the lovely Brooke…
