CLEOPATRA ENTERTAINMENT ACQUIRES
ENGLISH SPEAKING RIGHTS
TO "ESCAPE FROM AREA 51"
FROM GIRLS AND CORPSES FILMS
Sci-Fi Comedy debuts domestically Summer 2021
Cleopatra Entertainment has acquired North American, UK, New Zealand,
Australian, and South African distribution rights to ESCAPE FROM AREA 51,
a Sci-Fi/Comedy directed by Eric Mittleman. Starring Donna D'Errico
(Baywatch), Chris Browning (Sons of Anarchy, Ray Donovan), and Frankie
Sixx (daughter of M÷tley Cr?e founder/bassist Nikki Sixx), the film was
produced and financed by Robert Rhine of Girls And Corpses in association
with Sterling Entertainment and TomCat Films.
ESCAPE FROM AREA 51 begins when a group of teenage conspiracy theorists
try to raid the infamous military base, Area 51, in the Nevada desert. No
one gets in - but someone gets out. Sheera (D'Errico), a sexy alien
warrior, uses a power glitch to escape from captivity at Area 51. Her
escape using a portal gun sets off an energy signature which attracts the
attention of her arch-rival in space Sklarr (Browning). Sheera must now
elude an Area 51 scientist, as well as Sklarr, to rescue her fellow
warrior and find her way back to her planet.
The rights deal was brokered by Founder/CEO Brian Perera, VP/GM Tim Yasui
of Cleopatra Entertainment and by Ted Chalmers of TomCat Films on behalf
of the filmmakers.
"I have always been fascinated by the Sci-fi genre and Escape From Area
51 explores the possibility of an alien escaping from the top secret
Nevada facility during an attempted raid by teen conspiracists.," said
Producer/Girls And Corpses Founder Robert Rhine. "We were very lucky to
get actress Donna D'Errico (Baywatch) on board as our lead alien along
with Frankie Sixx (D'Errico's daughter with famed Motley Crue rocker
Nikki Sixx) in her first movie role. Fans will have a blast watching this
fun sci-fi flick."
The film's star, Donna D'Errico, who directed her scenes with her
daughter Frankie adds, "It was a really fun experience working on this
film, but getting to direct my daughter was truly a treat. She finally
did stuff I told her to do. But seriously, she's so great in this!"
"My goal with ESCAPE FROM AREA 51 was to create a fun and different Sci-
fi comedy," said Director Eric Mittleman. "When they let me cast my
longtime friend Donna D'Errico that sealed the deal, because she's fun
and I'm different."
ESCAPE FROM AREA 51 will be released domestically on VOD Platforms this
summer, and also as a Home Entertainment DVD and Blu-Ray package.
