Craig Owens, with band D.R.U.G.S, hints at being on the K-11 soundtrack

Could the songs Craig is writing with band mate, Matt Goddard and producer, John Feldman, be for K-11's soundtrack? Hoping so. 

If you're not familiar with Craig's band, D.R.U.G.S (Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows), here's a clip of them playing live:

Kate del Castillo talks in detail about her role in K-11 (Terra)

Google translated:

Kate del Castillo agrees that faces a huge challenge to give life to a transsexual in the U.S. film 'K-11'. 

The film addresses the story of a young and successful music producer who, after a three-day drunk, wakes up in a special unit of a Los Angeles jail, where prisoners are confined most vulnerable and also reigns of the fittest : that of a transsexual named 'Mousey'. 

"My character is called 'Julio Ruiz' but is better known as 'Mousey'. The script is brilliant, original, and my character is a risk and a challenge that only occur once in life. I am in the film, is one of the main characters. Everything surprises me, love my job, every day I thank God for being able to do what I like and receive money in return. I enjoy a lot, "Kate said in an interview via e- mail. 

This independent film is led by newcomer Jules Mann Stewart, known for his work as writer and supervising producer of 'Mortal Kombat' and 'Sixth Day', besides being the mother of actors Cameron and Kristen Stewart. 

The title refers to the actual name of a module of prison, 'K 11, which was confined to gay men to avoid being attacked in other parts of the prison. "K-11 is a unit within the prison where they have segregated all prisoners who are gay, bisexual and transgender people, so that not only addresses the issue (transsexual), he lives." The character comes to me at a time which I am prepared to play a role so difficult and so complex. It is a great opportunity, I am very lucky, "said the Mexican. 

In the film she shares scenes with Goran Visnjic, DB Sweeney, Portia Doubleday, Tara Buck and Tommy Lister, and she requires a comprehensive characterization work to completely change their image, because your body is riddled with tattoos and piercings. "It takes me four hours to make, and one hour of tattoos that I have throughout the body. I really look like a transvestite, is impressive change, the people's work of art and makeup is incredible." 

The preparation has also required a thorough investigation on the subject, not to fall into clich├ęs or prejudices. "I got to the person 'coachee' to Felicity Huffman in 'Transamerica' and helped me a lot, plus all the research I did on prisons, the K-11 and transsexuality. I believe that no person is prepared to live what is live in there. No person in reality we are prepared to live anything, there is no preparation for living, so just do what I can and research before you start, understanding and not judging my character. " 

Craig Owens mentions director, Jules Stewart "so creative, driven, generous...badass".

Billy Morrison thanks the cast of K-11 & praises Jules Stewart: "...a force to be reckoned with, & is a fierce talent."

As I enter my last week of filming on the set of K-11, I find myself reflecting on the process I’ve just been through and the education I’ve had. Being on a movie like this, for this long, has been an incredible experience for me. It’s not too often that we learn so much, so quickly and on a daily basis – and yet for the past three weeks I have done nothing but that. Learn. Understand. Grow as an actor (and as a human being) – and I’ve loved every minute of it. The movie itself looks simply stunning, and trust me when I say you’re going to want to see this thing. Some of the performances have been really intense, and I hope that I threw myself in at the deep end and went for my scenes with even a fraction of the commitment that the other members of the cast displayed.  

And witnessing writer/director Jules Stewart command the set is something that I will never forget. She is the real deal, a force to be reckoned with, and is a fierce talent. 

I want to thank everyone involved with K-11 for a fantastic month, and for allowing me to be a part of it all. I know I’ll be seeing all of you again real soon.
