Actor Jaime King has joined the cast of action movie “Lights Out,” a Firebrand production, starring Frank Grillo (who played Nico Tanner in “Billions”), Mekhi Phifer (“ER”), and Scott Adkins (“One Shot,” “John Wick: Chapter 4”). The Exchange, the world sales agent, is introducing the movie to buyers at the virtual European Film Market.

King, the star of Netflix’s “Black Summer” season one (2019) and season two (2021), has notably appeared in Michael Bay’s “Pearl Harbor,” Keenan Ivory Wayans’ “White Chicks,” Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City,” Frank Millers’ “The Spirit,” and Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”

“Lights Out,” which is in production, is a gritty modern-day “Road House” meets “Kickboxer,” set against the seedy underworld of Los Angeles.

An original screenplay by Garry Charles (“Welcome to Acapulco,” “Day of the Mummy”) and Chad Law (“The Hit List,” “Section Eight”), “Lights Out” is directed by Christian Sesma (“Paydirt,” “The Night Crew”) and produced by Brandon Burrows of Firebrand.

The cast also include Dermot Mulroney, Amaury Nolasco, Donald “Cowboy Cerrone,” Justin Furstenfeld, Juju Chan Szeto and Erica Peeples.

The Exchange’s lineup at the European Film Market, which is run by the Berlin Film Festival, includes Amy Rice’s “The Independent,” starring John Cena and Brian Cox, Alex Lehmann’s “Meet Cute,” starring Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson, Justine Bateman’s “Violet,” starring Olivia Munn, and Nicholas Manuel Pino’s “Bosco,” starring Aubrey Joseph, Tyrese Gibson and Vivica A. Fox.

King is represented by Management Production Entertainment, The Gersh Agency, and Myman Greenspan Fox Rosenberg Mobasser Younger & Light.
