The drama is currently shooting in Los Angeles. “Glass Jaw” is produced by Steve Perry (“True Romance”) and Zeus Zamani. The executive producers are Tommy Vlahopoulos of Tommy V Productions, Tom Sulkowski, and Dan Gatsby of Gatsby Studios.

Lee Kholafai plays the lead role in the pic about a one-time boxing champion who goes to prison and loses everything, then experiences the trials and tribulations of redeeming his reputation. The movie is directed by Jeff Celentano (“Breaking Point”) from a script by Brandon Espy, Lee Kholafai, Korrina Rico, and Michael Testa.

The cast includes Korrina Rico, Jon Gries, Ashlee Macropoulos, Mark Rolston, Jaime Camil, Vernon Wells, and Steven Williams.

Badazz plays a boxing bettor and underground fight club operator with street smarts who wins money on Kholafai’s character’s fight.
