So, what exactly is K-11? The first question that popped int my mind as well.
Turns out K-11 is the LA Counties trans-gender inmate unit at the county jail. Yeah, this is going to be one interesting flick.
The press release just showed up to announce the Blu-ray/DVD release, here’s the highlights:
“Breaking Glass Pictures and Libertine Films are proud to announce the upcoming April 23 Blu-ray (SRP $29.99) and DVD (SRP $24.99) release of Jules Stewart’s directorial debut, K-11, a riveting drama that tells the story of a man’s plight after winding up in K-11, the Los Angeles County Jail’s transgender inmate unit. K-11 is currently screening at select theaters in fifteen cities around the country and is available nationwide on Video On Demand.
K-11 stars Goran Visnjic (ABC-TV’s new hit series “Red Widow”, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, “ER”) as Raymond Saxx, a businessman whose drug use leads him to incarceration in the section of the Los Angeles County Jail reserved for LGBT inmates and firmly under the heel of Mousey (Mexican superstar Kate Del Castillo, Under the Same Moon, “La Reina del Sur”, “Weeds”), a malicious transgendered inmate. Saxx has no idea how he got there — all he knows is he needs to get the hell out… alive and intact. Aggressive cellmates, corrupt officials, and his own issues are just a few challenges he faces while he pieces together a way out of this entirely new kind of rabbit hole.
K-11 also stars DB Sweeney (Taken 2), Jason Mewes (Jay & Silent Bob, Clerks), Portia Doubleday (Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, Youth in Revolt, Almost Kings), and Tommy “Tiny” Lister (The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown). Jules’ son, Cameron Stewart, makes his film debut in K-11 as Sledgehammer while daughter Kristen (The Twilight Saga, On the Road) makes a special contribution.
The Blu-ray and DVD will come complete with a commentary by Jules Stewart and producer Tom Wright, deleted scenes, interviews with key cast and crew, a behind-the-scenes featurette, the “My Liberty” music video by cast member Billy Morrison, and a photo gallery.”
