An update to a project we first alerted you to over a year ago, in February 2012.

Danny Glover stars in the indie feature project 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 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 it was announced this afternoon that international film sales company Exchange, has boarded the film and is taking it to the Cannes Market (Marché du Film) later this month, where they hope 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.
