Get ready Atlanta and Los Angeles. This Labor Day weekend, Call Me King, the latest action thriller from filmmaker R.L. Scott (Champion Road: Arena) will be unleashed. The film stars Amin Joseph, Bai Ling, Chris Mulkey, and Bill Cobbs.
“Call Me King” is the story of two young heirs, Rhyis (Amin Joseph) and Khalil (Maurice Whitfield), members of an ousted Haitian dictatorship who immigrate to the United States. Now as adults, the brothers are seeking to right the wrongs perpetrated by their father Knight (Shaun Mixon) by assembling their own four-member crew of gun runners, “The Strap Set.”
The team is led by the eldest brother, Rhyis. His goal is to earn enough capital and power in America to return to Haiti and reclaim his birth rite. Khalil, the younger brother, handles the lion’s share of sales and distribution to foreign buyers. Grimm (Sean A. Riggs) handles heavy artillery and deals with local distributors and Zho (Johnathan McDaniel) is a lethal sharp shooter.
Rhyis answers to only one man… Angelo (Chris Mulkey), the head of the Italian syndicate. Angelo utilizes “The Strap Set” as his key enforcers. When the rules of the underworld are broken, these four men inflict punishment to the letter. Heavily armed with automatic weapons, lethal fighting skills, and the strategies of war… “The Strap Set” are locked, loaded, and intent on returning victorious to the docks of Port-Au-Prince Haiti.
Scott not only directed, but he wrote the screenplay, lensed the film, edited the film, and choreographed the action sequences due to his years of experience in the martial arts.
