Vancouver, British Columbia, October 9, 2013- Network Entertainment Inc. ("Network"), a subsidiary of Network Media Group Inc. (TSX-V: NTE), is pleased to announce an agreement with the Estate of Vincent Price under which Network will develop and produce a feature documentary on the life and legacy of horror film icon Vincent Price. Although Price had a 50 year career that spanned radio, stage, television and film in a wide variety of roles, his legacy was sealed through leading roles in landmark horror films, beginning in the 1950's and continuing for the next 30 years to the end of his illustrious and unparalleled career. Known affectionately as the King of Horror, Price's impact on horror cinema was so profound that his name has literally become synonymous with the genre. The film is the latest in a series of award winning Network documentaries on legendary figures, including Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen.
"My father will always be remembered as the master of horror, but his interests and passions were truly quite broad," said Price's daughter Victoria Price, "I look forward to working with the filmmakers at Network to bring his compelling and wholly original story to the screen."
"Anyone who has ever set foot in a theatre playing one of Vincent Price's films knows the fear he struck into the hearts of moviegoers everywhere through the frightening characters he portrayed, including contemporary classics like Edward Scissorhands and Michael Jackson's Thriller," adds Network CEO Derik Murray, "As huge fans of those films ourselves, our whole team is ecstatic at the opportunity to share the story of this bigger than life star with horror and film fans around the world."
