Genre Masters Unite for Jenn Wexlers Directorial Debut Lensing in New York Starring Jeremy Holm, Chloe Levine and Amanda Grace Benitez
(LOS ANGELES, CA – April 20th, 2017) Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Andrew van den Houten’s Hood River Entertainment have announced the cast of Jenn Wexler's THE RANGER, which began principal photography this week in New York.

She also produced Keating's DARLING which world premiered at Fantastic Fest and was released in 2016. THE RANGER marks her feature directorial debut.
