Big Mike Craft Gets a NO from Premier Sports on Laila Ali

user
On February 15th, 2009, Mr. Eric Kaufman of Premier Sports and Entertainment in Santa Monica, California emailed a polite NO answer, to our request for the services of Laila Ali in August 2009, in Saratoga, N.Y. I was personally very saddened, but the note was polite ,and stated that she had other committments. You win some and some you loose. I will always be a fan of Ms Ali and believe she is a beautiful woman. We had offered her a 6 figure salary and a small percentage of the film. We shall c...

Big Mike Craft to offer the Legend Ernest Borgnine, a role for the Saratoga, N.Y. Movie!

user
One of the greatest actors of all times is Ernest Borgnine. He was the best heavy of his time. A man who is decended from Italian royality, and an academy award winner, is going to be welcomed to our film, if he so wishes.   His part can not be discussed now for negotiations have just started for Laila Ali, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra Jr. and now Ernest Borgnine. I realize that Mr. Borgnine is 90 years old, but if he is willing, and his health is fine, he is welcome to join o...

Big Mike Craft to consult with Bobby Morris In Vegas for Wayne Newton

user
It is back to Las Vegas for me, at the present time. I am busting my backside to get this film underway. I have a part for Wayne Newton , as a crew member from my past! I do not want him to sing any of his hits. I really want him to act, in a way I personally believe, he can! I will continually update Fest21 members and guests on the movie's progress. I am still waiting for Premier Sports to get back to us on Laila Ali. It has only been one week, and I know she has a new baby. I hope she and h...

Big Mike Craft in Negotiations with Laila Ali via Premier Sports

user
Time is getting short and I am cranking up the camera's. On February 6th, 2009 I started inquiries with Premier Sports and Entertainment to contract Laila Ali for our Movie on my life , to be shot in Saratoga, N.Y. I have long been an admirer of Ms. Ali, and since seeing her on Dancing with the Stars, I know I have made the right choice. We are a Budgeted Film and Ms. Ali was offered a competitive Salary and 7% of the net profits. Mr Sinatra Jr. will also be offered a competitive Salary and 7%...

Big Mike Craft at The Saratoga Race Track and Harness Track

user
The summer in upstate New York is as nice as any place in the World. We call them August Nights. The day's at the track are usually hot and humid. The nights go down in the low 70's and high 60's. It  is a nice time of the year. The Polo matches are exciting and well run by Jim Rossi and Mike Bucci. I'm still waiting for their mystery Hotel to be built, but I like them both. When I show up at polo, I am treated as a gentleman. The food is always good and the Staff is wonderful. I like Polo an...
