Genesis Rodriguez and More Go Through Puberty
The new film Puberty was originally unveiled during this year’s AFM, and Variety is reporting that Tao Okamoto, Genesis Rodriguez (pictured), Martin Sensmeier, Chris Santos, and Rainey Qualley have joined the cast of Eddie Alcazar’s psychological thriller.
Abbie Cornish, Dylan Gelula, and Garrett Wareing also star. Production is set for this winter in Los Angeles with CAA handling domestic rights.
Alcazar is producing and directing Puberty from a script by Ted Kupper, based on a story by Alcazar and Kupper. Flying Lotus is executive producing and composing the score for the film. It’s the second feature for Brainfeeder Films, which was announced in September at the Toronto Film Festival.
Wareing is playing a teenage boy with a violent past who is haunted by dark visions and enters a mysterious clinic where the patients wildly transform their bodies and minds using genetic engineering. He undergoes treatment, installing therapeutic implants into his body, but discovers that purity of mind is not exactly what he’d imagined.
