Los Angeles, CA (May 28, 2024) – Baker Entertainment Group, a film development and production

company rooted in the tradition of classic Hollywood romance by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Baker,

announced today it has wrapped production on Fate and is looking ahead to its next and final film.

Bakers next project ICON will be his final act as he sets sail on his directorial career in Hollywood.

ICON is about a soul that moves through a hundred years until it reaches its destiny as a rock star,

using one familys saga through immigration and musical history as its backdrop. ICON will head into

production in 2025.

"I've waited my entire life to share this story," said Jonathan Baker. "This narrative of ICON is crucial

to America, highlighting the significance of immigration and how it shaped our nation. Our past is

integral to our identity. A film like ICON is truly unique; it blends a historical perspective with a musical

lens like never before."

Baker envisions a star-studded ensemble cast coming together to create what he calls a musical

masterpiece for ICON.

Production on Bakers last film Fate has wrapped, featuring an all star cast that includes Academy

Award-winning actor Faye Dunaway (Bonnie & Clyde, Chinatown), Academy Award-nominee

Harvey Keitel (Bugsy, Taxi Driver), Actor, Director, Writer, Andrew McCarthy (The Blacklist,

Orange is the New Black, Brats), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Mena Suvari (Grace and

Grit), Cheech Marin (From Dusk Till Dawn), and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Black Mirror).

The magic of the film is that everyone is not what they appear to be, said Academy Award-winner

Faye Dunaway.

Jonathan Baker spent two years crafting the cast of Fate by hiring against type for each role. Fate

and ICON are both co-written by Micheal Buhlman and Jonathan Baker.

Fate is currently looking for a domestic distributor who believes in theatrical releases. Highland Film

Group is handling international sales which kicked off at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
