Inception Media Group Acquires "My Own Love Song" Starring Academy Award(R) Winning Actors Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker

Inspiring Film Features Two-Time Academy Award(R) Nominated Actor Nick Nolte and Soundtrack by Legendary Musician Bob Dylan

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/11 -- Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, today announced it has acquired the North American rights to "My Own Love Song," an inspirational comedy with an Academy Award® winning cast and a musical soundtrack consisting exclusively of songs and score by the legendary Bob Dylan.

The film stars Renée Zellweger and Forest Whitaker, and features Nick Nolte, in addition to a talented supporting cast who have appeared in some of the most popular films and television programs of the past year, including Madeline Zima of "Heroes." The film was directed by Olivier Dahan, who directed "La Vie en Rose" which won two Academy Awards®.

Inception Media Group acquired all North American home video, digital and non-theatrical rights from Studio 37, the Paris-based film subsidiary of French telecommunications company Orange. The film premiered in the U.S. at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival and will be released in Spring 2011.

"My Own Love Song" revolves around Jane (Zellweger), a former singer who became disabled after an accident and her offbeat friend Joey (Whitaker) who comes across an invitation to the First Communion of Jane's long-lost son Devon. Joey convinces Jane to embark on a cross-country road trip to attend the communion and their journey takes turns that neither of them could ever have expected. Ultimately, the trip leads to a poignant reunion for Jane with her long-lost son, where she's finally able to sing to him the love song she's been writing in her head for years.

In addition to writing the musical soundtrack of the film, Bob Dylan wrote and performed the original instrumental score. In the film, Zellweger performs Dylan songs "Precious Angel" and "Life is Hard" and Whitaker performs "What Good Am I." Five Dylan songs on the soundtrack appear on his Grammy Award® nominated album, "Together Through Life."

"We are anticipating great support for this film among the retail and distribution community," said Andy Reimer, partner, Inception Media Group, LLC. "With two Academy Award®-winning actors, a legendary Academy Award®-nominee and original music by one of the most renowned singer-songwriters in the world, this is a perfect mass-market title."

Wendy Rutland brokered the deal between Inception Media Group and Studio 37.
