A Bevy Of Character Driven Actors Cast in
Supreme Ruler Are Locked For Production

2nd Line (L-R): Billy Zane, Vincent d'Onofrio, Anthony Anderson
Supreme Ruler, to be shot on location in Chicago, Illinois, is set to star Ron Livingstone (The Conjuring, The 5th Wave, Vincent D'Onofrio (Jurassic World, The Magnificent Seven), Minnie Driver (Jekyll Island, About A Boy TV series), Peyton List (Jessie TV Series), Billy Zane (Zoolander 2, Titanic, Phantom), Anthony Anderson (Transformers, Barber Shop, The Departed), Brian Geraghty (Jarhead, The Hurt Locker), and Natalie Zea (The Detour TV series).

Supreme Ruler Is produced by Max Czertok for EMovies, (known for Swelter and Walking to Paris), Duane Edwards for The King Productions (known for Cold Blood (2008), Motives & Murders: Cracking the Case (2012) and Urban Legends (2007). The film is Executive Produced by are Carol Bidault and Andrea Giannattasio for EMovies.

The film will be directed by awarding winning Duane Edwards for his shorts: (Hit and Run, The Confession, The Contest Winner, Imagine This) and is written by acclaimed writer Frederick Mensch who wrote the well-received HBO's Nightingale that starred David Oyelowo who was nominated for a Golden Globes 2016, and further nominations; Prime Emmy Awards 2015.

In the vein of Election meets Fargo, it is a film in which a man campaigns to become the leader of his Buffalo lodge. Supreme Ruler is a dramatic satire about a middle-aged, small town go-getter named Steve Loomis (Ron Livingstone) whose life revolves around the activities of his local Buffalo lodge. Steve looks forward to being elected Supreme Ruler of the lodge, but is unexpectedly challenged for the position by a hard-drinking, womanizing, older member of the club named Hank Dory (Vincent D'Onofrio).

Faced with the uncertain outcome of a contested election, Steve decides to win the support of the Order's national leaders by attending the Buffalo National Convention in Chicago. Unfortunately, Steve's earnest commitment to the Order's sacred principles of Fidelity, Brotherhood, Justice and Compassion aren't as compelling to the national Grand Supreme Rulers as Hank's good ol' boy charisma.

The Film is being presented to buyers in Cannes by Phoenix Worldwide Entertainment who is handling world sales on the film.
