Jeremy Holm (pictured above; “House of Cards”, “Mr Robot”), Chloe Levine (The Transfiguration, The OA), Amanda Grace Benitez (All Cheerleaders Die) star alongside Granit Lahu, Jeremy Pope, and Bubba Weiler star in Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Andrew van den Houten’s Hood River Entertainment The Ranger, which began principal photography this week in New York.
The Ranger, directed Jenn Wexler, follows a group of teen punks who get in trouble with the cops. The punks escape to the woods to hide out where they come up against the local authority, an unhinged park ranger with an axe to grind, hell-bent on preserving the serenity of his forest.
Wexler currently has three movies on the festival circuit as a producer, Robert Mockler’s Like Me which premiered at SXSW 2017, Ana Asensio’s Most Beautiful Island which premiered and won the Grand Jury Prize at SXSW 2017, and Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths, set to world premiere this week at the Tribeca Film Festival. She also produced Keating’s Darling which world premiered at Fantastic Fest and was released in 2016. The Ranger marks her feature directorial debut.
The Ranger was written by Jenn Wexler and Giaco Furino. Andrew van den Houten and Ashleigh Snead produce for Hood River Entertainment and Larry Fessenden and Heather Buckley produce for Glass Eye Pix, along with Wexler.
