Bully of the Mob In Development With A Green Light

Stoneking Media (Chicago) is proud to announce the development of their next film project, "Bully of the Mob." Having successfully produced the romantic comedy, "Divorced Dudes" (IMDB), Stoneking Media is shifting to the Crime, Drama, and Biography genres in developing the true story of one of the most devastating mob informants of the 20th Century, Jesse Stoneking.

Development of the story started in mid 2012, and hit a minor slow down along the way according to Writer/Producer Bill Stoneking. "The slow down of the development of the initial script cost us about 3 to 4 months, but honestly, we had to get the wraps on Divorced Dudes which required most of the focus at that time." Stoneking stated, "And with a World Premiere and Red Carpet event scheduled for the Sweetest Day weekend in October, we knew we'd be able to afford the time by putting BOM on the back burner for a couple of months."

With "Divorced Dudes" now moving into distribution, "Bully of the Mob" is back on the front burner in development and should be completed by the Winter of 2013. According to Bill Stoneking, the film has a green light to proceed with production in 2014, and is tentatively scheduled for a late summer release in 2015.
