Imperia Entertainment Signs UFC Fighter Josh Koscheck for MMA Movie 'Never Submit'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Imperia Entertainment, Inc. (Pink Sheets: IPEI - News) President James Hergott announced today that MMA fighter Josh Koscheck has been signed for the role of "William" in the MMA movie "Never Submit."

Hergott comments, "Over the past few months we have been auditioning fighters all over the country for 'Never Submit.' We have now auditioned over 300 fighters and actors and only a very small percentage have enough natural acting ability to be able to be in the movie. Josh Koscheck gave a great audition and I think people will be surprised with his acting ability."

"Never Submit" has retained veteran casting director Rosemary Welden who has cast over 55 films. Imperia will soon be casting nationally recognized top actors in the movie. Hergott's first feature film "All That I Need" did not have a well known cast but went on and received a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Market and was theatrically released in Regal, United Artist and Edwards theatres throughout the US. "Never Submit" will have a much bigger budget and more prominent cast. It was recently announced that both Ken Shamrock and Cung Le have been cast in key roles in the movie. The movie is set to begin filming the middle of April.
