Elia Cmiral is currently scoring the thriller Rites of Passage. The film marks the feature directorial debut of screenwriter W. Peter Iliff (Point Break, Patriot Games, Varsity Blues) and stars Christian Slater, Wes Bentley, Kate Maberley, Ryan Donowho and Stephen Dorff. The movie centers around an anthropology bookworm who laments his place in a society that lacks a ceremony to mark his transition into manhood and leads his hard-partying, stressed-out classmates to his family’s abandoned ranch — where his brother lives in a psychotic world of drugs, guilt and Chumash Indian rituals. Rites of Passage is currently in post-production and no release date has been announced.

As previously announced, Cmiral also has the best seller film adaptation of Atlas Shrugged coming up.
