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.

About R.L. Scott directly from the man himself:

A year later, he completed "Champion Road: Arena" its sequel, also released on DVD worldwide in mid 2012. In 2011 R.L. created the hit online series "Touye Pwen" which quickly found an audience and garnered a great deal of attention for it's creator. Late 2012, R.L. wrote, directed, produced and choreographed the action scenes for the feature film entitled "Call Me King"... a concept based on his previous online series (Touye Pwen) starring international superstar Bai Ling (Red Corner), Chris Mulkey (Boardwalk Empire), Alimi Ballard (Numbers), Lester Speight (Transformers Trilogy), Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco), Bill Cobbs (Oz: The great and Powerful), Del Zamora (True Blood), Gabrielle Dennis (The Game, Monyque Thompson Scott (Lie to Me)and Amin Joseph (The Expendables) who is also one of the film's key producers.
