Michael Jai White's THE OUTLAW JOHNNY BLACK Release Info


Samuel Goldwyn Films announced today that the company has acquired US rights to the western THE OUTLAW JOHNNY BLACK, written and directed by Michael Jai White, for a theatrical release on September 15. Donovan De Boer, Michael Jai White and Grant Gilmore serve as producers, with a screenplay by Michael Jai White.

SGF also revealed the teaser trailer for the partially crowd-funded Western adventure.

From the same team that made the 2009 cult classic BLACK DYNAMITE, THE OUTLAW JOHNNY BLACK stars Michael Jai White ("As Good as Dead"), Anika Noni Rose ("The Princess and the Frog"), Erica Ash ("We Have a Ghost"), Byron Minns ("Black Dynamite"), Kym Whitley ("Act Your Age"), and Tony Baker.

“We’re thrilled to be reteaming with Michael Jai White after the success of our 2022 action movie AS GOOD AS DEAD. This spiritual successor to BLACK DYNAMITE not only showcases Michael’s abilities as an action and comedy star, but also his skills as a filmmaker," said SGF president Peter Goldwyn.

Hell bent on avenging the death of his father, Johnny Black vows to gun down Brett Clayton and becomes a wanted man in the process. He goes into hiding, posing as a preacher in a small mining town that's been taken over by a notorious Land Baron.

"I hope this movie, inspired by the late Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte, creates for others, the kind of joy I felt as a child when I could watch movies over and over with my family and get something new each time!" said writer and director Michael Jai White.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will release THE OUTLAW JOHNNY BLACK exclusively in theaters on September 15.

As a long-time fan, I couldn't be more thrilled with this new movie, which picks up right where season 7 finale left off. Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment has delivered a truly special piece of animation that had me from start to finish. While the plot for the film is about what you'd expect from a direct to home video feature based on an animated series, there is something in the way all the pieces come together that is utterly compelling, making it impossible to look away. The story is well-crafted and the return of an imposing evil from the past adds a layer of depth and intensity that fans will appreciate. The voice talents in The Venture Bros. have always been top-notch, and R
