Abramorama has come aboard to release K-12, a full-length feature film based on the 24-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican-American singer-songwriter and former The Voice contestant’s latest album of the same name that hits shelves September 6.
The Atlantic Recordsalbum, Martinez’s follow-up to her 2015 platinum debut Cry Baby, serves as a soundtrack companion to the musical film, which is written, directed and stars Martinez.
K-12 will premiere in Los Angeles on September 3 and in New York on September 5, the same night it will be shown as a one-night-only global event in theaters worldwide.
In K-12 the movie, Martinez stars as Cry Baby, a strong and sensitive girl who is sent off to a disturbing sleepaway school hidden underneath a grandiose façade.
