Seputla Sebogodi will join Thuso Mbedu, John Boyega, and Viola Davis in the upcoming historical drama The Woman King. According to entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, iconic actor Seputla Sebogodi will be joining the film which will also boast of more South African talent. Mainly because it will be shot in a location in South Africa.

The drama is inspired by true events that took place in the Kingdom of Dahomey in the 18th and 19th centuries. The story follows Viola Davis as Nanisca, a military unit general, and Thuso Mbedu as Nawi, an ambitious recruit. Davis and Mbedu will fight enemies who violated their honor, enslaved their people, and threatened to destroy everything they’ve lived for. John Boyega will star as Dahomey’s ruler, King Ghezo.

Gina Prince-Bythewood serves as the director. She is known for recently directing the critically acclaimed blockbuster, The Old Guard. The Woman King is currently in development and the release date will be revealed soon.
