Please join Rhode Island native and renowned Director/Producer Michael Corrente and representatives from the Rhode Island Film & TV Office and the Providence Mayor's Dept. of Art, Culture and Tourism at 3PM on Thursday, June 12, 2008 at the Soldier's and Sailor's Monument in Kennedy Plaza facing Providence City Hall, as Mr. Corrente announces plans for filming his long-awaited political biopic THE PRINCE OF PROVIDENCE.

The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Adam Goldberg, Bradley Cooper, Ed Burns and Oliver Platt, who will portray former Providence Mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci in the David Mamet adapted screenplay of Michael Stanton's 2003 book about one of America's longest-serving mayors. Robin Williams is currently in negotiations to join this talented group of actors.

"The passion I have for THE PRINCE OF PROVIDENCE is stronger then any film I've made to date. Through much scrutiny and speculation, I've spent six long years preparing for this picture. I have painstakingly taken the necessary time to make sure that all my ducks are in a row. This is my home state, and I have an obligation to ensure that the quality of the production matches the brilliance of the material. At the end of the day, and every day does end, nobody ever cares about how long it takes to make a movie; they only care if it's good", stated Mr. Corrente.

DATE: Thursday, June 12, 2008
PLACE: Soldier's & Sailor's Monument in Kennedy Plaza facing Providence City Hall
