Clayton Cardenas (Mayans M.C.) has signed on to star opposite Taraji P. Henson in Alessandro Camon’s drama Time Alone, based on his play. The pic will begin production in Los Angeles in July.
In the film, Cardenas will play Gabriel, a young man convicted of killing a gang rival. His journey intersects with Anna (Henson), the mother of a police officer murdered in the line of duty, as they both end up in the world’s most lonely places: a solitary confinement prison cell, and the silent house of a grieving mother.
Cardenas was originally slated to play Gabriel onstage when the Belle Rêve production premiered at Los Angeles Theatre Center, before scheduling complications arose. Time Alone went on to receive the Stage Raw Award and Critics Award for Best Play, along with other nominations. Emanuel Morretti’s Motus Studios will finance and produce the film with Oakhurst Entertainment’s Jai Khanna and Marina Grasic. Cardenas’ manager Marni Rosenzweig will also produce for The Rosenzweig Group, alongside Escape Artists’ Todd Black, TPH Entertainment and Suzanne Warren, with Cardenas exec producing alongside Jason Tamasco and Zak Kristofek of Traction.
Adeola Role, who can currently be seen as a series regular on Fox’s character-driven police procedural Alert, has signed with The Rosenzweig Group for management in all areas.
Role portrays Kemi alongside Dania Ramirez and Scott Caan on Alert, a procedural drama about the Philadelphia Police Department’s Missing Person’s Unit (MPU). The series, from The Blacklist showrunner John Eisendrath and Jamie Foxx, is currently winding up its first season.
Role’s additional credits include The Good Fight, Blue Bloods, The Last O.G., The Blacklist and Pose. On Broadway, Role was recently seen in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. She also recently starred in the Off-Broadway production of On Sugarland at New York Theatre Workshop.
