THR reports that Luke Evans, Teresa Palmer and Alfred Molina are in talks to join the upcoming action thriller "Message from the King".
Get On Up's Chadwick Boseman stars as Jacob King, a young South African man who heads to Los Angeles in
search of his younger sister with just a few hundred dollars a return
ticket booked home in one week. Within one day he learns his sister has
been murdered, and the film follows his actions over the next six days.
Evans will play a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist who provides services
both legal and illegal and offers to help King find his sister. Palmer
will play a mother who turns tricks to support her drug habit and
six-year-old daughter. Molina will play a Hollywood producer who has
underworld connections and may or may not know where the stepson is.
Stephen Cornwell ("A Most Wanted Man") and Oliver Butcher ("Unknown") wrote the script from which Fabrice Du Welz's calling the action.
Cornwell, Simon Cornwell and David Lancaster will produce the film.
Production begins in March in Los Angeles.
