In the first-look photo from his new action-thriller Message From the King, Chadwick Boseman is a man on a mission.
After suddenly losing all contact with his younger sister, Jacob King arrives in Los Angeles determined to track her down. Trying to piece together her last known movements, King finds unsettling evidence of a life gone off the rails – drugs, sex and secrets in the sleazy underbelly of the City of Angels. Undeterred by warnings to go home, King proves to be more than a match for the violence he is confronted with as he relentlessly pursues the truth about what happened to his sister.
The movie, directed by Fabrice Du Welz, stars Boseman as a man from South Africa who has suddenly lost all contact with his younger sister, and travels to Los Angeles only to find evidence that she has gotten involved in the city’s dark underbelly. He then takes it upon himself to avenge her.
Luke Evans, Teresa Palmer and Alfred Molina star alongside the Black Panther actor in Message From the King, which is now in post-production. Stephen Cornwell and Oliver Butcher penned the script, with Cornwell also producing. The movie is produced by Entertainment One Features, Rumble Films and The Ink Factory. Sierra/Affinity is overseeing international sales, while Solar Pictures is releasing for Solar Entertainment.
Message From The King will be coming soon to the Philippines from Solar Pictures.
