DVD Info: LONELY STREET coming to DVD on August 18th.


The film version of Steve Brewer’s LONELY STREET will finally be available to the public at large. After a number of festival screenings, LS will be released as a DVD on August 18th. Echo Bridge Home Entertainment is the distributor.

Bumbling PI Bubba Mabry (Jay Mohr) will take any assignment to pay the rent, so when JG (Mike Starr) offers him some serious cash to protect a mystery client from an overzealous reporter, Bubba thinks he’s got it made…but he gets more than he bargained for when he discovers his client is Elvis, aka “Mr. Aaron” (Robert Patrick) who has faked his death and is planning a comeback. When the case takes a wild twist and the reporter turns up dead with Bubba as the prime suspect, he enlists the help of street-wise Rodent (Katt Williams) for some fast answers. With Detective Romero (Paul Rodriguez), Captain Morgan (Ernie Hudson), the beautiful bombshell Bambi Gamble (Nikki Cox), and a sexy tabloid editor, Felicia Quattlebaum (Lindsay Price), hot on Bubba’s tail in this whodunit, a rock-n-roll roller coaster unfolds! Also starring Joe Mantegna.

Now I have not seen the entire film, but the segments I have seen are pretty enjoyable. I asked author Steve Brewer what he thought of it:
“I saw the film at the Newport Beach Film Festival, and it was loads of fun. Very different from the book (aren’t they always?), more of a comedy, with spot-on performances by Jay Mohr and Robert Patrick and a theme song that sticks in your mind for days. I hope lots of folks enjoy the DVD.

In addition to the movie, the DVD will also feature the following extras:
Behind-the-scenes cast interviews
“Making of Elvis”
“When the Rebel Comes Home” music video
Four exclusive soundtracks

MSRP is $24.98
