Wexler was the lead producer on Ana Asensio’s drama “Most Beautiful Island,” which won the SXSW narrative competition last month.
Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Andrew van den Houten’s Hood River Entertainment are the production companies. Wexler produces along with Andrew van den Houten and Ashleigh Snead for Hood River Entertainment, and Larry Fessenden and Heather Buckley produce for Glass Eye Pix.
“The Ranger,” which has started shooting in New York, is written by Wexler and Giaco Furino. It follows a group of teen punks who get in trouble with the cops. The kids 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.
