Official Press Release:

Breaking Glass Pictures Signs Jules Stewart’s Directorial Debut, “K-11”, for North America

Philadelphia, PA — Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired domestic rights to K-11, the directorial debut of Jules Stewart, a veteran script supervisor. The drama, which deals with the politics of race and gender-identity in the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail, will hit North American screens in 2013. The deal was struck post-Toronto between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Libertine Films’ Tom Wright.

Upon signing, Wright said, “The Breaking Glass team is a great fit for K-11 as they are uniquely positioned to market the film to both a wide audience and the several niche demographics the film appeals to."

Wolff is excited to distribute a film that will resonate with a variety of audiences. “We are pleased to be distributing the very talented Jules Stewart’s first film. 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 expect quite a few Independent Spirit Award nominations.”

The film follows Raymond Saxx Jr. (Goran Visnjic, “ER”, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), a powerful record producer who wakes from a drug-induced blackout to find himself locked up in K-11, the prison for gay and transgender inmates. Plunged into a nightmarish world ruled by a transsexual diva named Mousey (Kate del Castillo, La Reina del Sur, “Weeds”), Raymond is truly a fish out of water.

Complicating matters are a troubled young transgender named Butterfly (Portia Doubleday, Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, Almost Kings), a predatory child molester (Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, The Dark Knight) and the ruthless Sheriff’s Deputy, Lt. Johnson (D.B. Sweeney, Hard Ball, Atlas Shrugged: Part II). Ray’s struggle to contact the outside world and regain his freedom seems impossible so he must learn to navigate this new power structure if he is going survive and be in control of his life again.

The supporting cast includes Jason Mewes (Clerks), Tara Buck (“True Blood”, “Justified”) and Cameron Stewart in his feature film debut.

Jules Stewart, the mother of Twilight actress Kristen Stewart, has recently signed on to direct 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, a process which upsets the ancient spirits inside.
