("Knightscove" ) is pleased to announce that "Ruby and the
Prince" has received certification in Belgium as a European content film and
will be Co-produced with Marmont based in Brussels. "Ruby and the Prince was
developed by Knightscove with the support of Telefilm Canada; it is written
and will be directed by Djordje Milicevic (Iron Will, Victory). The original
story created by Leif Bristow and Djordje Milicevic in the tradition of "Free
Willy", is of Ruby, an accomplished dancer whose family zoo can no longer
afford to keep the Asian Elephant which they rescued as a baby and have now
sold to a small traveling circus. As Ruby enters the world of the circus she
must learn to sacrifice and be prepared to risk everything to gain the
ultimate freedom for her best friend so that she can help repatriate him to
his birthplace. Inspired by the true story of the world's largest elephant,
Angus who died just prior to his repatriation from Canada to Africa, "Ruby and
the Prince" continues Knightscove's tradition of inspiring family friendly
    "As part of the creation and distribution of the film, we hope to see a
foundation created to help support elephants in captivity and in areas of the
world where their habitat is rapidly being destroyed. This is an opportunity
for us to create awareness and ask the global community to get involved in the
way that they supported Keiko after Free Willy came out" says, Leif Bristow,
Knightscove's CEO. "It is also a great relationship project bringing the
support of so many people and it begins our plan for continuing work with
Michel Houdmont of Marmont in Belgium." The film's budget is $9.2 mil and is
expected to be funded primarily through the participation of Marmont, Canadian
Tax Credits, the support of the Canadian Government agencies and sales.
