What Pete Allman has been up to lately...

"The movies which I produced as first producer are, ``Brando Unauthorized``, the story of Marlon Brando and his son Christian, Killer Priest, the story of a hit-man hired by an outside firm to take out Priest who ruined children`s lives and Vatos Locos 2011, which is in Walmart stores now.

All these movies star Damian Chapa, known for his role as Meklo in ``Blood In Blood Out`` and such films as ``Street Fighter`` where he played Ken, Under Siege with Steven Seagal, and The Mendez Brothers in Beverly Hills.

I learned to produce feature films from Damian for the last year and four months. Vatos Locos 2011, which I`m also executive producer on, is about The Mexican drug car-tell and The Asian car-tell, starring Chapa and co=[starring Gabriel Tang, who I discovered. I also am in all these films. The gang leader in Vatos Locos cuts my legs off in the trailer. In this film I portray a detective on the take. As the saying goes in Hollywood,``that;s a rap.`` - Pete Allman
