Morgan Freeman: Net Media Master

Actor Morgan Freeman embraces Net: When I think “Net-saavy Hollywood star,” Morgan Freeman doesn’t come to mind. This is an interesting development, however.

Actor Morgan Freeman’s production company says that next year, it will release a movie on the Net at the same time it film debuts in theaters, a move that could challenge others to follow suit.

[Freeman] …predicted that releasing a film in this fashion will likely be a first and prod other studios to begin to use the Net as a way to sell their products.
