Nashville-based 821 Entertainment is launching the most ambitious Roy Rogers program since, well, Leonard Slye became Roy Rogers.
“We need Roy,” says 821 CEO Eric Geadelmann, “and we’ve created a great opportunity to bring him back to the fore.”
Roy will be featured in Fantasy Adventure trilogy films, as well as animated films, merchandising, graphic novels, 33 remastered films and re-released CDs as well as new recording projects that may be a series of duets and interpretations of Roy Rogers songs by contemporary artists. That’s a lot of Roy.
The film company is also working on a biopic about Hank Williams Sr. Casting that gem ought to be interesting, for both the characters of Hank and his wife Audrey.
