Entertainment lending group Imperial Entertainment Group has been renamed Comerica Entertainment Group, following the acquisition of Imperial Bank by Comerica in Jan this year.

The completed merger gives the entertainment group, headed by president Morgan Rector, access to increased capital for financing entertainment projects and entities.

Comerica Entertainment Group has financed large-scale independent features including Angel Eyes and Driven for Franchise Pictures, Hardball and Rat Race for Fireworks Pictures and Bless The Child for Icon Entertainment International.
