Letitia Wright Is Preparing For Battle In The New Film ‘Surrounded’

The film is set to be released on June 20th.

Black Panther star Leticia Wright is suiting up for a different battle as she is set to play freed woman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington in MGM Studios new western film, Surrounded.

According to the synopsis, set five years after the Civil War, the soldier “travels west to lay claim on a gold mine—the summation of years of toil for Mo and her community. 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, which ensues a battle of wills, blurring the line between captor and captive, as they both try to survive the harsh western landscape.”

According to Deadline, the movie will also star Jamie Bell, Jeffrey Donovan, Brett Gelman, and the late Michael K. Williams, who passed away on September 6, 2021, after being found dead in his home.

“Portraying Mo Washington in Surrounded allowed me to transform as an artist, and I’m excited for Western movie lovers to dig into this story,” Wright told Shadow & Act in an exclusive statement.

The film is set to be released on June 20th.
