Breaking Glass picks up prison drama 'K-11' starring Goran Visnjic (THR)
Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired all domestic rights to K-11, the directorial debut of veteran script supervisor Jules Stewart.
The drama stars Goran Visnjic as a powerful record producer who wakes from a drug-induced blackout to find himself locked up in K-11, the section of the Los Angeles County Men’s Central jail for gay and transgender inmates.
The film also stars Kate del Castillo, Portia Doubleday, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, D. B. Sweeney, Jason Mewes, Tara Buck and Stewart’s son Cameron Stewart in his feature film debut.
The Philadelphia-based distributor plans to release the film theatrically in either late 2012 or early 2013.
The deal was concluded by Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Libertine Films’ Tom Wright. “K-11 is very unique to say the least and surely will raise a few eyebrows. The acting is dead on, the story is gripping, and we are gunning for multiple award nominations,” Wolff said.
Stewart, who also happens to be Kristen Stewart’s mother, has recently signed on to direct her next film for Libertine Films, The Locked House, a supernatural thriller about a 15th-century Chinese temple that is unearthed and moved to the States by a billionaire – upsetting the ancient spirits inside.
