Breaking Glass locks up ‘K-11’

Film unit nabs rights to Jules Stewart's directorial debut

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired all domestic theatrical and ancillary rights to indie drama “K-11,” the directorial debut of veteran script supervisor Jules Stewart.

Story deals with the politics of race and gender identity in the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail and will be released in North America in late 2012/early 2013.

The film stars Goran Visnjic (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) 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.

Kate del Castillo, Portia Doubleday, Tommy Lister and D.B. Sweeney also star, while supporting cast includes Jason Mewes, Tara Buck and Cameron Stewart, Jules Stewart’s son in his feature film debut.

Jules Stewart, the mother of Kristen Stewart, has recently signed on to direct her next film for Libertine Films, supernatural thriller “The Locked House.”

The deal was struck post-Toronto between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Libertine Films’ Tom Wright.
