A film released on May 1 starring Corey Feldman called “Operation Belvis Bash” created a bit of a stir. After filmgoers came away from the film, which told the story of a fictional operation to kill bin Laden, they soon learned bin Laden had been killed in real life. How creepy is that? Here’s the official press release:

George Bush’s backyard was the backdrop for what turned out to be an unexpected ending to an exciting evening for actor/singer Corey Feldman. Feldman’s latest film, Operation Belvis Bash premiered on May 1, in Houston,TX, and is the story of a special military operation whose goal is to assassinate Osama Bin Laden. Just a few minutes after seeing what audiences thought was a purely fictional assassination of the world’s most hated terrorist, they exited the theater to learn that it had happened in real life.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable,” commented Feldman. “I was in New York on September 11, 2001, with Michael Jackson, and then, nearly ten years later, I walk out of the premiere of my latest film, which I had postponed to be able to attend Corey Haim’s Decisions premiere and memorial, to learn that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by a special operation, just like in the film we’d just screened. The timing is simply unbelievable, and whether life imitates art, or art imitates life, now is a time for all Americans to express their gratitude to the brave men and women who serve our country and helped make this happen.”

SYNOPSIS: Operation Belvis Bash is the story of a struggling rock and roll musician (Alexander Loy) who is recruited to go to Afghanistan and win the hearts and minds of the Afghani people. He is joined by the outrageous “Jewtastic” comedian, Samuel Stilman (Corey Feldman) as he embarks upon his futile quest. As danger surrounds Bash and his rag-tag team of entertainers at the hands of infamous terrorist, Abdul (The Iron Sheik), Bash finds himself upstaged by a musical theater heavyweight, Alfons Logoluso (Frank Stallone). As another night falls on Kabul, will rock and roll shine the beacon of freedom in a land ravaged by darkness?

The film premiered in Texas and is currently planning a limited release this summer. Please visit www.belvisbash.com for more on Operation Belvis Bash.
