New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
"Wedding at Walmart," an "outrageous wedding romp that takes the cake," is modeled after "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," the highest-grossing wedding comedy genre movie in Hollywood history, which was made for $5 Million and earned over $368 Million. "Sexual Explosion," # 1 most famous nude portrait painting in modern art and now is on target to becoming This Century's "Mona Lisa," will be made into a "high-profile" major Hollywood feature motion picture. The Jim Warren nude is a haunting love story about the girl in the "Sexual Explosion" painting who comes to life. Both feature films are set to be shot in Hawaii and Lanai according to Stan Zipperman, spokesman for Hollywood Entertainment Productions.
"Sexual Explosion" (1976), Jim Warren's groundbreaking and controversial nude portrait painting, was originally banned from public exhibition during the American Sexual Revolution in the seventies for being "obscene and sexually explicit" in its revealing theme of "exploding ecstasy." Then in 2011, the image was named the most famous nude painting in modern contemporary art since the nudes of Modigliani, Dali and Picasso based on ranking data from Google Images, Yahoo Images and YouTube.
"Wedding at Walmart" will be filmed in the surfing and hula dancing mecca of Waikiki, according to Zipperman, spokesman for the movie. Hollywood Entertainment Productions is in the first stages of organizing elaborate far-reaching and innovative publicity and marketing campaigns for "Wedding at Walmart" to directly tie-in the dominant participation of huge wedding-related industries with an exclusive on-screen and off-screen product/brand presence on a grand global scale. These industries are expected to bring in considerable extra dollars in addition to the normal theatrical box office revenue, DVD sales, music soundtrack album sales, and publishing income which provide the bulk of a theatrical feature's typical dollar intake.
Beyond this, "Wedding at Walmart" will be filmed at several renowned tourist attractions and events in Hawaii to add production value to the big screen. Hawaii is already the world's # 1 "Honeymoon Destination," in itself a $12 Billion dollar industry. Moreover, the Hawaii Film Office has a favorable cost-friendly policy for movie producers using Hawaiian locations.
The first high-profile film, "Sexual Explosion," has its own momentum and notoriety. In 2011, "Sexual Explosion" ranked in the # 4 position in a survey which sought to establish the Top 10 Most Famous Paintings in Modern
Art based on Google Images, Yahoo Images and YouTube documented research and databases. Of the 10 finalists dominated by da Vinci, Dali and van Gogh masterpieces, "Sexual Explosion" was the newest painting and Jim Warren was the only living artist.
"What we now know is this," explains veteran art and film critic Zipperman. "The Internet
is 'the' gigantic information source of choice these days. With its global reach, the Internet
has changed how artworks become world-famous," Zipperman asserts. "Viewing a painting in person at an art museum, fine art gallery or at an art auction no longer has clout. Internet
online viewing is the new key driver to earn worldwide influence, fame and success in modern art."
"What a story this is -- this mind-boggling wonder of 'Sexual Explosion,'"Zipperman asserts.
In 2011, Google had already amassed over 11 Billion Images in its database. By 2011, "Sexual Explosion" had been building to fame for nearly 40 years. By comparison, "Mona Lisa
" took over 500 years of history to become the most famous painting in the world. "Sexual Explosion" accomplished the impossible of the impossible by usually ranking on Page 1 in # 1 or # 2 or near the top in Google Images most famous nude paintings in the world, modern nude paintings, surreal nude paintings and Pop Art nude paintings categories, thus outranking the nudes of painters Modigliani, Dali, Picasso, Renoir, Goya, Manet, Duchamp and Gauguin. No wonder "Sexual Explosion" is rightfully on target to becoming "This Century's 'Mona Lisa.'"
"Sexual Explosion" has garnered a built-in audience on leading online art sites like Art Collectors Website and Art Brokerage, and on YouTube as well, where it has been featured on many art and music videos. The iconic portrait has already gained stardom in its own right. To this day, it has never been viewed in public and yet, it has achieved its place in modern art history by being on the Internet
in the right place at the right time. And all along, it was secured in a private art collector's vault for decades.
"In Jim Warren's 'Sexual Explosion' picture is the alluring naked female figure of the reclining girl set on a Dali-inspired surreal beach or is it a surreal ocean or, indeed, is it somewhere in the surreal heavens where she is in a state of 'exploding ecstasy?" Zipperman asks.
To help solve this mystery, Hollywood Entertainment Productions has assigned noted Hollywood writer and journalist John Griswald, who is the author of the erotic novel, "The Girl From Rue Serpente," to write the screenplay based on a story idea inspired by Zipperman. According to Griswald, "the script will be written in a romantic fantasy drama style like that of Megan Ellison's recent Academy Award winning film "Her," the box office hit movie from Annapuna Pictures."
The Griswald book, "The Girl From Rue Serpente," now featured on Amazon eBooks, is an erotic novel - the World War II tragic love story between an American soldier and a French Resistance fighter caught in the web of a crazed priest during the Liberation of Paris from the Nazi Occupation in 1944.
A worldwide talent search will be conducted in the near future for an actress to portray the mystical muse in the "Sexual Explosion" portrait. The roles for two leading men to play opposite her will also be sought.
In addition, Hollywood Entertainment Productions is in the planning stages to secure the approval from the owners of "Sexual Explosion" to permit the first public showing ever of Warren's nude at future world premieres where movie stars and celebrities from the art and auction world will parade down red carpets in front of movie cameras and the news media.
"Wedding at Walmart," is a romantic comedy in the profitable Hollywood wedding genre, but it will be marketed as "an outrageous wedding romp that takes the cake." It is currently in pre-production development and is slated as the second "high-profile" picture to be filmed by Hollywood Entertainment Productions. The story is from an original treatment by Stan Zipperman and John Griswald. The screenplay for "Wedding at Walmart" is expected to be assigned to a screenwriter and a class director is expected to be selected soon. In addition, Hollywood Entertainment Productions intends to conduct a talent search in the Hawaiian islands for the four leading characters. Two male roles will be for 'heart-throb sexy' younger leading men and two female roles will be for 'drop-dead gorgeous' ingenues. More importantly, however, the cast will also include big-name movie stars who will appear in outlandish mind-blowing guest cameos strictly for laughs and for surprising shock-value scenes ," promises Griswald.
Getting back to "Sexual Explosion," painter Jim Warren, born in 1949, would become world-renowned by 1980. Before that, he was establishing himself as an important emerging artist and cult figure, especially among the Hollywood entertainment intelligentsia, with his works such as "Sexual Explosion," "Re-Birth" (1976), "Running Wild" (1977), and "Eternal Youth" (1977). In 1980, Warren achieved international attention for winning the Best Album Cover Art for Bob Seger's "Against the Wind" LP. Warren's wild horses on the cover became the most famous horse icons in modern times with the album selling over 6 million copies worldwide.
Warren's image of "Re-Birth," the "other" Warren nude noted for its glorious glow, became world-famous and with triumphant public reception and news media publicity; the painting also achieved high rankings on leading search engines, following closely behind "Sexual Explosion; his "Running Wild," the prototype for the art work on "Against the Wind," became more acclaimed. And his majestic and cosmic male nude portrait, "Eternal Youth," also met with global approval in the art scene. None of these paintings were ever exhibited publicly and were kept under seal in a private art collection.
As Hollywood Entertainment Productions expands its operations and production partners and affiliates worldwide, new announcements will be forthcoming.
