Rob Morgan, who had major roles over the past few years in Mudbound, Just Mercy, The Last Black Man in San Francisco and more, enters the rodeo circuit for his upcoming film Bull.
Directed by Annie Silverstein, Bull follows Kris (Amber Harvard), a 14-year-old girl who runs the risk of being thrown in the state penitentiary after trashing her neighbor’s home.
The official description: It centers around 14-year-old Kris, who, after trashing her neighbor’s house in a fit of youthful defiance, seems destined to follow in her mother’s footsteps to the state penitentiary. To make amends, she is forced to help Abe Turner (Morgan), an ex-bull rider scraping by on the Texas rodeo circuit, with errands at home and at his work. While traveling with Abe, she discovers a passion for bull riding. Yet, as Kris sets out to learn the dangerous sport, bad influences lure her back into delinquent ways. Meanwhile, Abe struggles with the aches and pains of growing older and aging out of the only life he has ever known. Together, Kris and Abe forge an unexpected connection, helping each other see new possibilities and hope for the future before it’s too late.
Distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films, Bull also stars The Chi‘s Yolanda Ross and hails from Bert Marcus Productions. Bull will be released on VOD and Digital on May 1.
