ACTOR/PRODUCER COREY LARGE PRESENTS THE DRUG DRAMA ‘KID CANNABIS’ OUT APRIL 18

GameStop, Inc.

Meet actor, writer and producer Corey Large, who’s emerging as one of the most sough-after producers in Hollywood and Canada – with nearly 15 projects slated for release in 2014/15. Born in Victoria, this B.C. boy who has been under the radar is now flying high working with a dream team of A-listers . We’re talking the likes of Martin Scorsese, Russell Crowe, Mark Wahlberg, John Cusack, Pierce Brosnan, Anne Hathaway, 50 Cent, Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, and the list goes on!

Corey heads up Wingman Productions – the company behind John Stockwell’s “Kid Cannabis,” which hits theatres across North America on April 18. The Canadian talent also acts in Stockwell’s drug drama starring veteran actors Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”) and John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”). Based on Mark Binelli’s 2005 article in Rolling Stone, “Kid Cannabis” tells the true story of Nate Norman (Jonathan Daniel Brown), an Idaho teen dropout who builds a multimillion-dollar marijuana ring by trafficking drugs across the Canadian border. His pursuit of the high life – complete with girls, guns, and vicious rival drug lords – gets this ex-pizza boy and his delinquent pals in over their heads.

The year 2014 will prove to be Corey’s busiest yet. He’s producing and executive producing over 10 films, including Martin Scorsese’s period piece “Silence,” which features an all-star cast rounded out by Liam Neeson, “Spider-Man’s” Andrew Garfield, and Adam Driver (“Girls”). Other projects include “The Prince” starring Bruce Willis, John Cusack and Jessica Lowndes, “Any Day” featuring Sean Bean, Eva Longoria, and “Unconscious” starring Kate Bosworth and Wes Bentley.

Other feature films being released this year are ‘November Man’ starring Pierce Bronson, Lucey Bucey and Olga Kurylenko in the Roger Donaldson directed spy-thriller an adaptation of the Bill Granger novel There Are No Spies, in which a former CIA operative who is brought back in on a very personal mission finds himself pitted against his former protégé in a deadly game involving high-level CIA officials and the Russian President-elect. Also ‘Poker Night’ filmed in Victoria starring Ron Pearlman, Giancario Esposito, Lochlyn Munro and Michael Eklund will be released this November.

Corey took matters into his own hands early on in his career. In 2003, the Victoria-native established Wingman Productions to create his own noteworthy projects, enabling him to run his studio and control the direction of his movies. The goal was simple: produce mainstream features on a budget, without compromising quality. His recipe worked and by the time Corey turned 30 he had already raised more than $100 million dollars for film productions.

The Promotion People - Wingman Productions

Some of the vast talent Corey has worked with through his various Wingman projects include: Nicolas Cage, Liam Hemsworth, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Emma Roberts, Adam Brody, Jesse Metcalfe, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kaley Cuoco, Tom Sizemore,

Corey continues to show audiences that he is a versatile producer. The actor-turned-movie-maker has multiple projects on the go, including the action packed comedy/horror film “Zombeavers,” Martin Scorcese’s “Revenge of the Green Dragons,” and “Empire State,” which is headlined by The Rock and Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”). Other features under his belt include “Don Peyote” featuring Josh Duhamel, Dan Fogler and Anne Hathaway, and the upcoming comedy ““The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” starring Mila Kunis and Oscar-winner Robin Williams.

Staying prevalent in the acting realm, Corey recently appeared in the critically acclaimed “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Eric Bana.

Proving he’s not afraid of multitasking, the busy moviemaker wrote, produced and acted in the film “Chasing Ghost” starring Michael Madsen, Shannyn Sossamon and Meat Loaf, which he sold to Sony Pictures. Along with his partners, Corey has written, produced, co-starred in and sold a number of other full-length features to Hollywood studios, including:  “Loaded”,“ Toxic”, “The Penthouse”, “The Obama Effect”, “Welcome to the Jungle”, and “The Frozen Ground”.

In 2004 Corey founded Tunnel Post, an in-house post-production company based in Santa Monica that specializes in creating high-end content for film, television and live events. The company has provided digital intermediate and post production services to practically every major player in Hollywood, including 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, Lionsgate, The Weinstein Company and MGM. Networks include: CBS, NBC, HBO, ESPN, The History Channel, The CW, and Syfy. Among Tunnel Post’s feature film projects are  “Killing them Softly” with Brad Pitt, “Broken City” with Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg, and “The Tomb” with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.

The 38-year-old producer was born and raised in Victoria, BC. In his early twenties Corey moved to Vancouver to pursue film and television roles, and started booking projects immediately. In 2003 he wrote, produced and starred in his first film, “Window Theory.” While he began working his way up in the industry, Corey studied his craft at the Vancouver Film School and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he learned from top instructors, including “Seinfeld’s” Jason Alexander.

Corey splits his time between Los Angeles and Victoria, continuing to produce feature films in Canada. Staying true to his roots, the busy mogul will venture back to Vancouver/Victoria to produce, and also act, in “The Passenger” alongside Vancouver actor/set designer Chad Krowchuk who will be directing the film.

– “Kid Cannabis” will be screening in New York, Hawaii, Chicago, Miami, Denver, Los Angeles, San Diego, Toronto, Montreal, and Boise
