FAYE DUNAWAY WRAPS FILMING ON JONATHAN BAKER’S ‘FATE THE MOVIE’ AHEAD OF CELEBRATORY MOMENT AT CANNES FOR HER HBO DOCUMENTARY ‘FAYE’

FATE

Baker Entertainment Group, a film production company led by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Baker, has announced Janet Montgomery as a young Faye Dunaway in “Fate The Movie”. Dunaway has just wrapped her role as Tilly, which spans an entire lifetime, bridging the character to life by the talents of both Dunaway and Montgomery into one central character. While the film is still in production, this marks a significant milestone in her legendary career as Dunaway heads to Cannes to screen her celebratory HBO documentary “Faye”. Highland Film Group will be on the ground selling “Fate The Movie” from writer-producer-director Jonathan Baker, making this his second to last film he’ll ever create. Janet Montgomery, playing Young Tilly, was cast out of hundreds of actors for this role. “She stepped in with beauty, love, and laughter to play a strong sophisticated soul which will illuminate the film. Once Janet listened to the music of the movie, Nessun Dorma, Nat King Cole's ‘Unforgettable’, and our original song “forever is yesterday” by singer songwriter Trease,” said Baker. “Out of all our cast members, Janet has worked the hardest to embody and challenge her character through Faye Dunaway and into her original performance of Young TIlly. Everyone is a muse in this movie for me as I step into every character as I bring them to life. With Janet's background and chemistry with Brandon Routh, this is an epic love story that will live on forever.” “I think he’s one of the important directors that we’re watching today. And I think it’s a really interesting film. He’s got a great cast, it’s an amazing script, and what drew me to the film is we’re all in a holistic retreat so that means maybe we’re not all there at the same time and it’s interesting from that point of view. I like him very much. And I'm glad to be in this film with him,” said Faye Dunaway in an interview with Vancouver Sun. Jonathan Baker stated, “Faye Dunaway is one of the greatest actors of our time. When I crafted her role in the film “Fate”, I could see no one else that could play that part better than her. With such respect and admiration, I had the pleasure to experience the brilliant performance of Faye Dunaway alongside Harvey Keitel in my film.” Synopsis: It takes a minute to find a special person and an entire lifetime to forget them. After a rescue mission gone wrong, a firefighter Sam Ellis (Brandon Routh) connects with a stranger from the past Tilly (Janet Montgomery) while he's healing at a rehabilitation center and is transported through time to find the only thing saving his soul, is his realization of true love. Jonathan Baker is producing “Fate The Movie” after being in development for five years, bringing a singular ambition and passion to creating this feature film.

JONATHAN BAKER’S ‘FATE THE MOVIE’ ADDS BRANDON ROUTH, MENA SUVARI, AND CHEECH MARIN TO THE CAST

FATE

Los Angeles, CA (May 13, 2024) - Baker Entertainment Group, a film production company led by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Baker, has announced the latest key additions to its ensemble cast for the upcoming feature "Fate The Movie", including Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Mena Suvari (“Grace and Grit”, “American Beauty”), and Cheech Marin (“Cheech & Chong”, “From Dusk Till Dawn”). Production is underway in Vancouver with previously announced actors Academy Award-winner Faye Dunaway (“Bonnie & Clyde”, “Chinatown,” “Network”), Academy Award-nominee Harvey Keitel (“Bugsy”, "Reservoir Dogs", “Taxi Driver”), and Actor, Director, Writer, Andrew McCarthy (“The Blacklist,” “Orange is the New Black” and the upcoming documentary “Brats”). Highland Film Group is handling international rights, launching sales at the Marché du Cannes. “We’re honored to welcome Brandon Routh, Mena Suvari, and Cheech Marin to our extraordinary cast on “Fate The Movie”, which is going to be the second to last film I ever make,” said Jonathan Baker, producer, writer and director. “Their collective talent, along with the esteemed contributions of Hollywood Legends Faye Dunaway, Harvey Keitel, and Andrew McCarthy, adds immense depth to our film. With this dream cast, we’re thrilled to bring this epic love story to life in an unforgettable way.” Enthralled by smart storytelling and larger-than-life figures, “Fate The Movie” has secured the rights to Nat King Cole and his hit ‘Unforgettable’, acting as the north star in the film. The music partnership between Baker Entertainment Group and the Nat King Cole Foundation plays a large part of the film by portraying a new “character” on the project. “'Unforgettable' is not just a song in our film; it's a beacon, guiding audiences through the emotional journey of the film. I'm honored to have the Foundation's endorsement, and I look forward to paying tribute to him through the film”. Synopsis: It takes a minute to find a special person and an entire lifetime to forget them. After a rescue mission gone wrong, a firefighter Sam Ellis (Brandon Routh) connects with a stranger from the past Tilly, while he's healing at a rehabilitation center and is transported through time to find the only thing saving his soul, is his realization of true love. Leading the cast in “Fate The Movie” is Superman himself Brandon Routh, continuing his excellent run of recent projects. Routh was handpicked from hundreds of actors and Jonathan was passionate from the beginning that Brandon was the only actor who could bring this role to life. “His dashing good looks, comedic timing, and charm are unmatched. Brandon will help connect audiences to the story of ‘Fate The Movie’ as the world falls in love with him and our movie,” said Jonathan Baker. In Mena, Jonathan was inspired by “Grace & Grit”, blown away by her range and instincts as an actor. “Her complicated character, and the emotional undertaking required for such a key role could only be achieved by someone of Mena’s stature and experience.” Jonathan is also excited to welcome the iconic Cheech Marin as a pivotal character, drawing inspiration from comedic actors playing against type such as Dave Chappelle in Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star Is Born’ and the late Don Rickles in ‘Casino.’ Jonathan believes “Cheech will stand out, bringing charisma and wit to an important role”. “Fate” also includes Sienna Soho Baker who rejoins her father for the first time since she was 4 years old, playing opposite Nicholas Cage in “Inconceivable.” James Van Patten rounds out the cast with over 40 movies under his belt including the “Saw” franchise and “Inconceivable”, where he previously worked with Jonathan. The son of the late Dick Van Patten, James comes from Hollywood royalty and is excited to join the cast. Jonathan Baker is producing “Fate The Movie” after being in development for five years, bringing a singular ambition and passion to creating this feature film. ### Contact Details Jive PR + Digital Jordan Parlee jordan@jiveprdigital.com Company Website https://www.bakerentertainmentgroup.com

Analyst's Bold SOL Forecast Grabs Headlines; KANG and DOGE Reign Supreme in the Meme Coin Space

Kangamoon

The crypto market was recently shaken after analyst Altcoin Sherpa made a bold Solana (SOL) price prediction. Meanwhile, KangaMoon (KANG) and Dogecoin (DOGE) are soaring in the meme coin space. In fact, numerous analysts claim that KANG, which is now in Stage 5 of its presale, could become the next 100x meme coin in 2024. Today, we find out why. Altcoin Sherpa: The Solana Price Could Surge to $500 Solana (SOL) has been showing some volatility in the market. CoinMarketCap data shows that the price of SOL fell from $154 to $133 on the one-week chart. In that time, the Solana market cap also moved between $68B and $59B. However, crypto analyst Altcoin Sherpa remains bullish. In his new tweet, he predicts SOL's growth to $500 this year. From a technical analysis standpoint, this prediction could come true. For example, the Solana coin trades above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. As a result, experts have made a bullish Solana price prediction - reaching $177 before the end of Q2 2024. KangaMoon (KANG): Among the Best Meme Coins To Buy As Solana steals all attention, other cryptos are still making headlines. KangaMoon (KANG) is one coin that has shone with its stellar presale performance. Notably, this meme coin has already raised over $6M and will reach $7M before May 2024 ends. There are now over 6K KANG holders and 20K registered community members. Evidently, global traders are interested in this meme coin since it will bring something new - utility. KANG will be the main in-game currency for KangaMoon's upcoming P2E game. With this meme coin, you can buy in-game items as well as upgrade characters. This utility immediately separates KANG from 99% of other meme coins, which are hype-driven only. Another aspect that makes KangaMoon different is its community-driven focus. For instance, KangaMoon rewards its most active community members with free KANG tokens before its launch. Thus, 20K members rush to like/share/comment on KangaMoon's social media posts and earn this meme coin for free. Early buyers of KANG have already experienced a 290% ROI as KANG costs $0.0196 in Stage 5 of its presale. But remember that KangaMoon has ties to the P2E gaming market, which may reach $885M by 2028. This means that KANG's long-term growth potential is outstanding. Experts foresee a 100x jump once this meme coin gets a Tier-1 CEX listing in Q2 of 2024. Analyst Kevin Makes a Bullish Dogecoin Price Prediction Meanwhile, Dogecoin (DOGE) is another meme coin that is seeing some bullish signs. For example, the Dogecoin volume has jumped 26% in the past week alone. In that period, the price of DOGE fluctuated between $0.15 and $0.13. Based on the historical performance, analyst Kevin predicts that this meme coin may soar to $3.80. The technical analysis for the Dogecoin crypto also shows bullish signals. For example, DOGE is trading above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. Thus, experts foresee a rise to $0.21 for Dogecoin within Q2 of 2024. Solana vs. KangaMoon vs. Dogecoin - Which One Rises First? In the battle between Solana, KangaMoon, and Dogecoin, the spotlight shines on KangaMoon. This is because KANG boasts a low market cap of $19.6M, hinting at its potential for explosive growth with fewer new funds needed for its price to skyrocket. If you want this meme coin, sign up for its presale and get a 10% bonus. Discover the Exciting Opportunities of the KangaMoon (KANG) Presale Today!

MODERN MARKET EATERY DEBUTS SUSTAINABLE SHRIMP IN ITS NEW SUMMER MENU ROLLOUT

Modern Market Eatery

Modern Market Eatery, the Colorado-based fast casual concept specializing in scratch-made meals using clean ingredients, announced today the addition of sustainable shrimp to the summer menu. The new summer menu rolls out across Modern Market Eatery’s 31 restaurants nationwide today. The shrimp is sourced only from farms certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), whose work with fisheries, scientists and industry stakeholders ensure oceans are fished sustainably to make it easier for consumers to find and buy certified sustainable seafood. Modern Market Eatery is doing just that for its guests by incorporating only MSC-certified shrimp in its menu items. Modern Market Eatery guests have demonstrated their affinity for seafood as salmon and tuna are among the brand’s best-selling options. After careful sourcing, the summer menu will feature the following sustainable shrimp entrees in addition to the core menu: Shrimp BLT Salad – In Modern Market Eatery’s take on BLT, magical bacon bread crumbs (combination of panko and bacon) join chilled herbed shrimp in its salad made of arugula and spring mix, heirloom cherry tomato and red onion. To top it off, blue cheese and avocado are placed on top of the chilled herb shrimp along with a generous sprinkle of these special bacon breadcrumbs. The dish is finished with a low-fat, basil buttermilk dressing, bringing diners a bright, fresh and delicious summer option for combatting the heat. Green Goddess Shrimp Bowl – Contrary to typical green goddess dressing, Modern Market Eatery’s version is lighter and healthier with its Greek yogurt base and capers’ addition. The dressing is drizzled on top of a bed of organic rice and quinoa, marinated kale, roasted zucchini, watermelon radish, marinated red pepper, goat cheese and the menu’s debut -- chilled herb shrimp to make this bowl the perfect dish to enjoy during the heat of summer. Protein Option – Sustainable shrimp can now be added to any menu item as a protein selection in guests’ customizations. Modern Market Eatery’s emphasis on healthy-sourced proteins has been at its core since the company’s founding 15 years ago. The quality of the proteins, coupled with their versatility, have been offered as freshly sliced-to-order options, and sustainable shrimp will afford diners the same choices. Also debuting on the summer menu is the Sweet Corn Chicken Pizza and a return of a Modern Market Eatery fan favorite, Summer Seared Ahi Tuna Salad. “At Modern Market Eatery, we never cease to innovate. That’s exactly what we did with the debut of sustainable shrimp on our new summer menu. We continue to deliver food our guests enjoy through a healthy, sustainable lens without ever skimping on flavor,” explains Nate Weir, vice president of culinary at Modern Market Eatery. “The new, herbaceous menu items are no exception to our commitment to food standards and our guests’ preferences. Our seafood entrees have continuously been among our top sellers, and the addition of these new shrimp items affords them yet another choice. Our sustainable shrimp offers a lighter, versatile protein that can complement any dish on Modern Market Eatery’s menu, even those where shrimp isn’t the headliner. It pairs well with many of our new and core menu items, and we’re confident our guests will embrace this new protein option,” Weir concludes. About Modern Market Eatery Founded in 2009 in Boulder, Colo., Denver-based Modern Market Eatery continues to prove faster food can be better food by making it easy to access fresh, nourishing and delicious meals.
