Chadwick Boseman stars as Jacob King in our LA-set revenge thriller

Published: 12 Jul 2011

Shooting is well underway on Message From the King, our action-packed story of revenge starring Chadwick Boseman, Luke Evans, Alfred Molina and Teresa Palmer.

Jacob King (Boseman) arrives in Los Angeles from Cape Town looking for his missing younger sister. A stranger in a strange land, he has $600 in his pocket and a return ticket home in seven days. Within twenty-four hours Jacob King knows his sister is dead. This is the story of what happens in the next six days.

As he searches for his sister’s killers, wreaking havoc in her name, King’s journey propels him deep into the LA underworld and its intersection with Hollywood high society.

We are delighted to be working with Chadwick Boseman and Fabrice du Welz on this film. Chadwick’s unique talent and intelligence have brought a special combination of empathy and energy to the role, and in combination with Fabrice’s exciting vision, and the stellar cast he has assembled, we are sure this will deliver something extraordinary.
