LOS ANGELES - Grindhouse Releasing is proud to announce that Duke Mitchell's long-lost 1970s crime saga GONE WITH THE POPE will be shown on screens across the country following the film's successful world premiere in Hollywood. A renowned nightclub entertainer, singer and movie actor known as "Mr. Palm Springs," Mitchell directs and stars in GONE WITH THE POPE as an ex-con who hatches a plan to kidnap the Pope in exchange for the ransom of "a dollar from every Catholic in the world." The movie has been described as "the holy grail for lovers of B-movies" and "a true gem from the American underground." GONE WITH THE POPE was shot in 1975 but remained unfinished at the time of Duke Mitchell's death in 1981. The film reels sat in his son's garage until Grindhouse Releasing owners Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski offered to take a shot at piecing the movie together. Murawski took charge of the restoration and spent 15 years giving Mitchell's low-budget movie an A-list treatment in between editing Sam Raimi's SPIDER MAN 1, 2 & 3, DRAG ME TO HELL, and THE HURT LOCKER. Murawski and wife/partner Chris Innis won Best Film Editing Oscars for their work on THE HURT LOCKER the same week that GONE WITH THE POPE premiered at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. --© Official Site

              Armaan's (Arshad Warsi) life is picture perfect; a loving girlfriend and a great job as a fashion photographer. Yet things aren't as perfect as they seem to be. He is a chronic patient of insomnia though his sleeplessness is not a function of a sleeping disorder. The truth is that he hears voices - voices that torture him, voices that don't let him have his peace, and voices that nobody else can hear. While his friends sympathize with him, his girlfriend, Gehna (Dia Mirza), is irritated with his weird behavior while her father constantly berates him for his fondness for the bottle. No one seems to understand Armaan's predicament. What is even more puzzling is the fact that he talks to himself...or rather, to people, whom no one can see! Suddenly aware of his special ability to connect with the souls that haven't crossed over, and equipped with a will to fulfill the wishes of the spirits that hound him, Armaan sets out on a mission to help three souls - a child, an old man, and a young woman.
