Danny Glover White Supremacist Hostage Drama ('Supremacy') Gets A First Poster

Supremacy

An update to a project we first alerted you to 2 years ago, in February 2012.

Danny Glover stars in the indie feature titled Supremacy, based on a true story about a recently-paroled white supremacist who, after killing a police officer, takes an African American family hostage.

The official synopsis reads:

Based on a true story. A paroled white supremacist has just killed a cop, and takes a black family hostage over a long night of terror as authorities cordon off the neighborhood where he and his lady accomplice are laying low. Mount plays the role of Sobecki, a heavily tattooed maximum security prison inmate who's the head of the Aryan Brotherhood and oversees his criminal empire from behind bars. He's the kidnapper's leader and not thrilled when he learns of his charge's screw-up when he's called in by authorities to negotiate with the kidnapper.

The film is directed by Deon Taylor, whose most recent and maybe most prominent work was the 2010 indie horror/thriller titled Chain Letter.

Derek LukeEvan RossLela RochonJoe Anderson (The Grey, The River) and Dawn Olivieri (she plays Don Cheadle's ex-wife on Showtime's House Of Lies) round out the cast, with Anson Mount, best known from the AMC series Hell On Wheels, playing the white supremacist who takes the black family hostage.

The film is apparently done, as international film sales company Exchange, boarded the project last year, taking it to the 2013 Cannes Market (Marché du Film), to sell it to distributors around the world.

I am very proud to introduce this powerful new movie to the buyers in Cannes [...] Deon made a great film with standout performances. Supremacy is exciting, intense and most importantly its based on true events which makes this movie very marketable,” said Brian O'Shea, chief at Exchange.

Deon Taylor added: “This is a very special film, and I truly believe audiences will be memorized by the performances.

Still no word on an official release, although IMDB says it'll be out some time this year.

No trailer yet. But I did dig up a first poster for the film which is embedded below (the above photo is a still from the film).
