Amesbury's Millette consulted on Kevin James picture

(Continued)

Millette lent his expertise to Sony Pictures for “Here Comes the Boom,” and as part of the return on his services, he was invited to a movie premier at Lowe’s Theaters in Boston Monday evening.

“I’ve been a fan of Kevin James from ‘King of Queens,’ but I’ve never been big on his movies,” Millette said. “Honestly, though, this movie is awesome. It’s like ‘Remember the Titans.’ It’s funny, but it’s more of an inspirational movie.”

Millette was surprised to see his name in the credits Monday evening. He is hoping to ride the momentum from this movie into his next venture into the Hollywood production scene.

“I’ve always thought about writing a movie about snowboarding,” Millette said. “Not until this movie did I decide to sit down and write it.”

Millette recently accepted a bid on his script from Hollywood producer J. Todd Harris, who recently released the movie, “Crooked Arrows.” The snowboarding-themed movie will have a main character based on a combination of two lives: Millette’s and Lago’s. Millette plans to begin fundraising for the movie in December in hopes of beginning filming in March. He hopes to release the movie by the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

In other news, Millette’s Global Fight League recently partnered with Latitude Sports Club in Peabody. Millette plans to use the Peabody gym as the set for a reality mixed martial arts television show.

“We’re looking for people who have never done it before,” Millette said. “It’s like Kevin James’ character in the movie. They think they might want to do it, but they have to go through tryouts first.”
