Oroloro Entertainment Reboots MegaBall$

Oroloro Entertainment Reboots MegaBall$

New York, NY, United States

MegaBall$, a comedy film about computer geeks the lotto and the Mob, has restarted its development. Thanks to our new lawyer and Co-Executive Producer, Hal “Corky” Kessler, we have completely reformed our offering, budget ($2 mil), schedule and all supporting documents. Oroloro will be officially announcing the reboot at the Toronto Film Festival 2016.

Carky joins the award-winning production team, which includes DP Dejan Georgevich, Production Designer Roger Ambrose, Costumer Rosemary Ponzo, Producer John “JB” Bruno and Script Supervsior Veronica Lupu; Casting Director Ellen Jacoby; to be helmed by writer/director Marc Baron, and co-director Joe Cirillo

When an OCD computer geek, determined to prove he can predict winning lotto results, uncovers his plan has been financed by the Mob, he struggles to beat the odds before his number’s up. Filming will take place in NYC, late Spring 2017. The screenplay ranked in the top 10% of 1,260 international entries of the 2015 Screencraft Comedy Screenplay Competition.

Written by Marc Baron while taking care of his mother during his last days, the story was inspired by a lotto sign near a Manhattan subway stop. Ellen Jacoby saids, “The script os one of the funniest I’ve read in long time;” Fred Caruso (production manager of The Godfather, stated “MegaBall$ has lots of potential;” Baron stated, “I needed to escape during a difficult time, so I entered the world of comedy.”

Marc Baron has been serving on the NY Board of SAG-AFTRA for over 9 years, and is the Shepherd (president) of America’s oldest theatrical organization, The Lambs. He was urged to write by Matthew Broderick and Dustin Hoffman while working on the film Family Business. Oroloro partner Jose Cirillo began his career when Mike Nichols recommended him for work in The Godfather; Joe later worked as an advisor to the Kojak TV-series, and became Telly Savalas’ personal assistant.
