From writer, director, fight choreographer R.L. Scott (photo above) comes a new indie thriller/actioner titled Call Me King which is described as follows:

In the international world of gun running... loyalty, honor and discretion are valuable commodities, but nothing is more priceless than the bond of family. Power begets enemies and a loved ones betrayal cuts like a knife. Sides will be chosen, wars will be fought. In the end, there can only be one King.

Executive produced by Amin Joseph and produced by David A. Fisher, the film stars Bai Ling, Amin Joseph, Chris Mulkey, Bill Cobbs, Robert Miano, Lester Speight, Gabrielle Dennis, Alimi Ballard, Sean Riggs, Jonathan "Lil J" McDaniel, Monyque Thompson Scott, TJ Hoban, Shaun Mixon, Del Zamora, Maurice Whitfield and Johnny DeBeer.

    Best trailer I've seen in years. It looks like a 30 million dollar film. Great job Mr. RL Scott. Amin Joseph is the new Wesley Snipes.
