Breaking Glass acquired the rights to the film in January in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff, and writer/director George Bamber and Kept Boy, LLC. The film is slated for a DVD/VOD release August 8, 2017.Based on the novel of the same name by Robert Rodi, KEPT BOY is the second feature film directed by George Bamber, who is well-known for his successful AD career on films such as Pitch Perfect, The Lincoln Lawyer, Jeepers Creepers, and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. The film is proudly produced by Laura Reich, Haley Christensen, and Ben Simons. KEPT BOY held its world premiere at the prestigious OUTshine Film Festival in Miami. The film stars Jon Paul Phillips (X/Y), Thure Riefenstein ('The Man in the High Castle', Behind the Candelabra), and Greg Audino ('Angie Tribeca', 'New Girl', Rosewood).
