Bonifacio to helm, star in ‘Quitter’

Multihyphenate to also produce under Goodface Films banner

Matthew Bonifacio (“Lbs.”) will direct, produce and star in indie drama “The Quitter,” which goes into production this month in Brooklyn.

Julianna Gelinas and Neil Jain are also producing. Bonifacio is producing via his Goodface Films banner while Aaron Wolf is co-exec producing through his Howling Wolf Productions shingle. Bill Gullo penned the script.

Deirdre O’Connell (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), Dan Grimaldi (“The Sopranos”), Jack O’Connell (“Doubt”) and Natasha Lyonne are also starring.

Bonifacio plays a failed baseball player trying to become a father to the seven-year-old girl he abandoned while she was in utero.
