Pierre’s novel dramatizes the history of the Cosa Nostra, beginning with its roots in Italy and the organizing role played by Carlo Gambino, its boss from 1957 until his death in bed in 1976 in his Long Island home. Gambino was reputed to be the inspiration for Mario Puzo’s The Godfather. In the novel, Gambino carries a copy of Nicolo Machiavelli’s The Prince with him on the boat from Italy.
Story Merchant/Atchity Productions Ken Atchity, who introduced the book to Nasso, will serve as executive producer.
Vallelonga, speaking in Cannes, said that the approach he and Gallo are taking is not just that of a typical mob movie: “We’ve seen a lot of that. This is Shakespearean.” “Think Once Upon a Time in America,” said Nasso, whose start in the film business was as assistant to Sergio Leone. New York in the ‘50s and ‘70s will be reconstructed in Rome’s Cinecittà studios.
Author James Pierre has also published How Did Warren Buffet Succeed, and is nearly finished with Gambino: The Triumph, his sequel to the Gambino saga. He was born and raised in Brooklyn where he witnessed as a teenager a Mafia hit that led him to a lifetime fascination with the Gambino family.
According to Variety, “the film is being produced by Nasso Productions (a Nasso-Zheng company) and fully financed by Edward Zeng and former Credit Suisse CEO Tidjane Thiam, with international sales handled by Minerva Pictures.”
Gambino: The Rise by James Pierre is available on Amazon

HYSTERIA, a mischievously inspired romantic comedy set in the late 19th century, is based on the surprising truth of how Mortimer Granville came up with the world's first electromechanical vibrator in the name of medical science.
In "The Expatriate aka Erased" Aaron Eckhart plays a former CIA agent who moves to Belgium, trying to make a fresh go of things as the relationship with his 15-year-old daughter (Liana Libreto) has crumbled. Working for a multinational corporation as a security head, he arrives to work one day to find that the corporation doesn’t actually exist and everyone he works with has vanished. He discovers his assistant is actually a trained operative trying to kill him. On the run with his daughter, the experience forces the two to trust and work with one another. Olga Kurylenko will play his former CIA partner and lover trying to track him down.
The movie opened in 96 other countries and territories to the tune of $101.5 million worldwide opening of $146.9 million. In China, the film’s co-producer made $50.3 million from 12,650 screens in the first weekend and was ranked #3. Mexico ($6.2 million), Russia ($5 million), the U.K. ($4.4 million), Spain ($2.4 million), and the Philippines ($2 million) also had very successful openings.
The Plot of The Meg Movie
We're pleased to launch The 1 Field & Beyond, this time with
John Stuart Reid.
Watch the trailer:
In "The 1 Field" we brought you nine minutes of the groundbreaking experiment that we documented.
Now, for the first time, we are revealing a 150 minute documentation that we couldn't include in the film. Moment by moment, the entire experiment that John conducted with Anders and Cacina, until the amazing, groundbreaking results, or as we like to call them, "historic" results, that expose more secrets from the wondrous world of sound.
Another experiment we're revealing for the very first time, in real time – how a harmonious and beautiful shape is enmeshed in blood and remains there for many minutes after the sound that created it stopped. Far-reaching ramifications to this phenomenon and we're merely at the tip of the iceberg of the mysterious world yet to be uncovered.
In 2019, when we documented this, John asked not to make the footage public. It was too innovative, with extremely major implications as he explained.
For the launch of The 1 Field & Beyond we got permission to reveal it here for this first time. It's stunning!
You can view all this material for at least one year, but you can download the original soundtrack that was played for the blood in real time.
It's the soundtrack that created the seminal effect on the amount of living cells and the oxygen level and vitality of the blood.
You can play this soundtrack for your blood cells whenever you're in need of energy:)
You can also download two articles by John:
Sound Therapy 101 and 201 that distill in easy-to-understand language the history of sound therapy and music medicine, and the biological mechanisms.
A discount coupon just for you for DNA Voice Signature.
John Stuart Reid explains in his own words:
Your DNA not only determines your body shape, facial features and the color of your eyes and hair, it also shapes your unique voice.
Now, your personalized DNA Voice Signature can be imaged using our exclusive CymaScope technology.
In a seamless blend of science and art, we will image your voice and supply a digital file in colors of your choice that you can have printed at any print.
We invite you to dive deep into the magical world of sounds
The 1 Field & Beyond is much more than the sequel to The 1 Field
