Letitia Wright and the late Michael K. Williams are taking on the wild west in the upcoming film Surrounded. The MGM film will be available digitally everywhere June 20. Check out the trailer, poster and first look images below.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, Surrounded stars Wright and Williams in a story about a female Buffalo soldier whose stagecoach comes under siege. According to the official description:
Five years after the Civil War, freedwoman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine- the summation of years of toil for Mo and her community. It is a mean, dangerous world for an unaccompanied Black woman in 1870 America and so Mo travels into the deep frontier disguised as a man. After her stagecoach is ambushed by a group of murderous thieves, Mo is forced to hold legendary outlaw Tommy Walsh captive while the remaining surviving passengers seek out help. What ensues is a battle of wills, blurring the line between captor and captive, as they both try to survive the harsh western landscape.
The film also stars Jamie Bell, Jeffrey Donovan and Brett Gelman. The film was written by Andrew Pagana and Justin Thomas and executive produced by Aaron Ginsberg, William Green, Jason Cloth, Richard McConnell and Suraj Maraboyina. Wright also produces with Mandler, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Michael Berman, Derek Iger and Ade O’Adesina.
