Says Ginger: "I'm really pleased. He's one of the most talented directors in the business, and has even roped in Mickey Rourke in a plum role." As for how all this came about, the singer stated that "Jonas is a good friend of [SILVERGINGER 5 guitarist] Conny Bloom's, and likes SG5 a lot. When he heard the track, he decided that it was perfect for his movie. Jonas seems to be the kind of guy that puts his money where his mouth is. Let's hope that fate lends a hand and we get some well deserved attention from this break."
