Evermore (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “Rectify”), and Brett Cullen (“42,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). Klock also recently finished shooting the pilot for the reality-based TV show JUMP OUTS, which he hosted and co-created along with Thomas Bannister. The project is produced by Dailymotion and SXM productions.
