Happy Birthday Sean Bean!


Today, April 17th, we celebrate his 50th birthday and his stellar career spanning every medium, from theatre to radio, from television to film.

We thank him for sharing his talent with his fans, amazing us with playing such varied roles as the impassioned Mellors in Lady Chatterley, the heroic Richard Sharpe in the beloved Sharpe Series, and the fallible Boromir in The Lord of the Rings.

Through him we’ve modeled for a great Master, taken on the French, been driven by jealousy, lost a brother, sworn vengeance, plotted and schemed, scored a goal, loved like no other, suffered capture and torture, defended the people, sworn our allegiance, grieved for a child, fought with mythic grandeur, gone into the mind of a madman, plumbed the depths of evil, lived by our wits in the sand and the snow, slain our enemies and died a thousand deaths -- and still the journey has not ended.

We congratulate him on his critically acclaimed role of corrupt real estate developer John Dawson in the 2009 David Peace drama series The Red Riding Trilogy on UK’s Channel 4.

His next role in CA$H has us eager with anticipation, and we expect he will receive the attention he deserves.

Sean, may all your dreams come true, for you have been true to yourself and the result has been everyone’s gain. On behalf of all your fans, with affection and admiration.

Happy Birthday Sean!

Three Good Men Collaborates With Media 8 Entertainment on CA$H

Three Good Men announced today that it has entered into a deal with Media 8 Entertainment regarding the world-wide distribution of its film CA$H, starring Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Flightplan). Under the agreement, Media 8 will serve as world sales agent for the film, which will make its market debut at the upcoming Cannes Marche du Film in May.

“We are so excited to collaborate with Media 8 Entertainment, as they have worked with many other notable films that fall into the CA$H genre. These movies have attained great success under the Media 8 banner. We look forward to adding CA$H to its list of high-quality films,” said CA$H producer Naveen Chathappuram.
“We are really excited to bring the movie CA$H to the worldwide marketplace. The film is a smart, action-filled ride, with an excellent performance by Sean Bean at its center,” said Stewart Hall, President of Media 8 Entertainment. “And the themes of greed, materialism, and morality that this film raises are especially timely in today’s environment.”
CA$H is an action-driven psychological thriller that examines the gripping power money wields over us all. In CASH!, a stroke of good luck for Sam (Chris Hemsworth – Star Trek, A Perfect Getaway) and his wife Leslie (Victoria Profeta - Push) quickly turns deadly when the strange and sinister criminal Pyke Kubic (Sean Bean) appears at their doorstep. As Pyke leads Sam and Leslie on a tumultuous adventure through the streets of Chicago, each are pulled deeper and deeper into a desperate spiral of violence and deception-- all in the name of money.
CA$H is the work of acclaimed director Stephen Milburn Anderson of SOUTH CENTRAL fame. Known for his examination of societal evils in SOUTH CENTRAL, Anderson continues his analysis of the human persona through CA$H
CA$H is filmed in association with Immortal Thoughts Production, Golden Wings Cinema and Tomahawk Films.
