JUNCTION Starring Rapp, Zayas, O'Keefe Begins Filming 11/17
Choice Films is proud to announce the cast of their upcoming feature film Junction written and directed by awarding winning writer Tony Glazer. Junction will begin shooting on November 17 for one month in Fort Lee, NJ with an anticipated release in about 12 months.
Junction follows four strung-out meth-addicts who discover a dark secret about a homeowner during a burglary, pitting them not only against the police but against each other. And as they spiral out of control toward the explosive climax the lines blur between right and wrong until the final unexpected twist is revealed.
"I've wanted to make a film about this subject matter for quite a while now," says writer/director Tony Glazer. "And while it is dark stuff, at its heart, this film is a genre-thriller with the kinds of twists, turns and surprises that will keep you guessing until the very end. You will be sweating it out with these characters until the very last scene is revealed. It's the kind of rollercoaster ride that requires a very special group of actors and I'm thrilled with the great cast we have assembled. We are going to have a great time making this film."
Junction will mark Glazer's debut as a feature-film director. Glazer previously directed a series of digital shorts as part of dual multi-media showcases, as well as a variety of Theater Productions in New York City and Los Angeles. Glazer recently directed Better Living, a stage-play produced by T. Schreiber Studio in NYC, which was nominated for 3 NYIT (New York Innovative Theater) Awards for Excellence. He is the author of the stage-plays Stain, In the Daylight (both of which had successful runs in New York); co-author of the stage-play Safe (along with Anthony Ruivivar) and author of two of the Top 25 short stories published in the Writer's Digest's 2006 Best Short Story Competition (selected out of more than 7,900 submissions). Glazer was recently awarded the prestigious L. Arnold Weissberger Award for playwriting for his play The Substance of Bliss. He also is in post-production on a short film he co-produced with Pâté Productions, Ltd and Movie Ranch Entertainment entitled A Younger Man and he will premiere three plays in New York in 2011, The Homeless Dogs of Egypt, American Stare and The Substance of Bliss.
