HipHopPress.com: Los Angeles CA, July 21, 2010 – Bert Marcus Productions, the company behind the upcoming Adrian Grenier HBO documentary Teenage Paparazzo, has today announced its second documentary feature film How to Make Money Selling Drugs, which features participation from a slew of noteworthy figures from the political, entertainment and celebrity arenas.
Founded by filmmaker and entrepreneur Bert Marcus, the company is focused on producing documentary and feature films that explore issues of contemporary life in innovative and thought-provoking ways. How to Make Money Selling Drugs is the company’s second film with Adrian Grenier and features a visually stunning chronicle of the adrenaline-fueled high-stakes world of drug dealing. The film is produced by Bert Marcus and Adrian Grenier. Matt Cooke directs.
In How to Make Money Selling Drugs, Marcus takes a decidedly unconventional documentary approach, presenting a provocative glimpse into the lives of those involved in the “war on drugs.” Marcus gains a diverse and unique perspective on the subject by interviewing rappers 50 Cent and Eminem, as well as actors Adrian Grenier, Woody Harrelson, Susan Sarandon and infamous drug kingpin “Freeway” Rick Ross. Bert Marcus Productions was granted unprecedented access for the film from top-ranking Government officials including U.S. Drug Czar, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and former Senate Majority Leader and current Middle East envoy George Mitchell, all providing varied viewpoints on this controversial subject. Marcus only in his late twenty’s, was both a writer and producer for the project, handling everything from development, day to day production, raising financing and talent attachment. The film’s only producers are Bert Marcus and Adrian Grenier. Matt Cooke is directing.
