Director R.L. Scott’s new action drama, Call Me King, services a delightful story full of thrills, spills and explosive action and intensity to boot. The film is now available on VOD but hopefully you’ve gotten a foothold of the current locations where the film is screening should you wish to see it on the big screen.
Chris Mulkey (Boardwalk Empire, Captain Phillips) Bill Cobbs (Night at the Museum, The Sopranos), international star Bai Ling (Crank: High Voltage) and rising stars Amin Joseph (Dope, The Expendables, Zane’s Sex Chronicles, Sister Code) and Maurice Whitfield (Big Time Rush) will shock audiences in the new action crime thriller Call Me King on Friday, Sept. 4, 2015 (in theatres, Cable VOD and digital). The action-packed Call Me King is a fresh take on the action genre that includes an international cast speaking over 10 languages, as well as gruesome fight sequences and high death counts. The film combines an art-action graphic novel mood mixed with a guns blazing theme a’ la Rock n Rolla, and unfolds in the international world of gunrunning centered on blood, loyalty, and power.
Call Me King is sexy, gritty and explosive and packs a literal punch. Seamless storytelling and superior acting make for a stellar silver screen experience from beginning to end. Call Me King is written, directed and produced by industry newcomer R.L. Scott (Shadow Motion Pictures) along with producer David A. Fisher (Fisherthoughts Media Group) and Executive Producer / Leading Role Actor Amin Joseph (Dark Energy Pictures).
Joseph gives a standout performance as “Rhyis,” the older brother of “Khalil” played by Whitfield who are both members of an ousted Haitian dictatorship who immigrate to the U.S. Now as adults, the brothers are seeking to right the wrongs caused by their father “Knight” (played by Shaun Mixon) and assemble a kick ass four-member crew of gunrunners known as “The Strap Set.” Hollywood veteran Mulkey doesn’t disappoint with a memorable performance as “Angelo Costa,” head of the Italian syndicate who utilizes “The Strap Set” as his key enforcers.
Scott and Joseph are bringing a fresh new energy to Hollywood by combining their creative forces for the highly anticipated new film that appeals to action movie lovers nationwide. The theatrical version of Call Me King will be released on Friday, Sept. 4, 2015 in theaters nationwide, cable VOD and most digital platforms.
