Lionsgate has dropped a trailer for the film Arthur The King, based on Mikael Lindnord’s book Arthur: The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find a Home.
Directed by Simon Cellan Jones, and written by Michael Brandt, the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Simu Liu, Juliet Rylance, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ali Suliman, with Bear Grylls as Himself, and Paul Guilfoyle
Over the course of ten days and 435 miles, an unbreakable bond is forged between pro adventure racer Michael Light (Mark Wahlberg) and a scrappy street dog companion dubbed Arthur. Light is desperate for one last chance to win, as he convinces a sponsor to back him and a team of athletes (Simu Liu, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Ali Suliman) for the Adventure Racing World Championship in the Dominican Republic. As the team is pushed to their outer limits of endurance in the race, Arthur redefines what victory, loyalty and friendship truly mean.
Arthur The King is produced by Wahlberg, Tucker Tooley, Mark Canton, Courtney Solomon, Tessa Tooley, and Stephen Levinson. Lionsgate presents in association with eOne, a Tucker Tooley Entertainment / Mark Canton / Municipal Pictures production.
