Drinks Americas Holdings has secured a product placement deal with a Hollywood film company.

The US group, which boasts Trump vodka and Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon in its portfolio, said yesterday (8 March) that it has reached agreement with Twisted Pictures, an affiliate of Evolution Entertainment, to cross-market Drinks America's beverages in film and television productions. Financial details of the tie-up were not disclosed.

Among the films produced by Twisted Pictures in the past are Bull Durham, Can't Buy Me Love and the SAW franchise. The co-presidents of Twisted Pictures and Evolution Entertainment, Mark Burg and Oren Koules, are also executive producers on US TV sit-com Two-And-A-Half Men.

"As it has become apparent that our products are becoming the celebrities of the beverage business, it is very fitting that our icon-associated beverages have found their way into movie and television productions," said J. Patrick Kenny, CEO of Drinks Americas.
