Simmons (WHIPLASH), Jane Lynch (GLEE), Johnny Simmons (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER), Blake Cooper (THE MAZE RUNNER), Kumail Nanjiani (SILICON VALLEY), and many more.

Los Angeles, CA (August 25, 2015)– Los Angeles-based production outfits Eclectic Pictures andIneffable Pictures have announced the start of production on the feature film THE LATE BLOOMER.

THE LATE BLOOMER is based on the life story of noted journalist and author Ken Baker, who battled with a skull base tumor that wreaked havoc on his hormonal system and prevented him from entirely going through puberty until age 27. Baker’s experience inspired his non-fiction book Man Made: A Memoir of my Body. Using the book and Baker as a comedic jumping off point, THE LATE BLOOMER tells the story of Pete Newmans, whose arrested development makes him an ideal counsel for restraint as a sex therapist. As he simultaneously falls in love and surgery cures his condition, Pete wrestles with a flood of emotions, as well as the reactions of friends, family and enemies as he copes with the wrenching changes in his life and body. Penned by Joe Nussbaum, Paul A. Kaplan & Mark Torgove, and Kyle Cooper & Austyn Jeffs, it’s a story of remarkable freshness and verve, wit and heartbreak—made all the more immediate and relatable when you realize this actually happened to somebody.
