Joey King just booked her next gig — in Lifetime’s Outlaw Prophet.
The 14-year-old actress will star as Elissa Walls in the upcoming biopic, based upon Stephen Singular‘s New York Times best-selling book “When Men Become Gods” and chronicles Warren Jeffs‘ rise to power after the death of his father, Rulon.
Divergent‘s Tony Goldwyn will play Warren, the leader of the Fundamentalist Mormon polygamist sect who spent more than a year on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List. He had eluded authorities and was ultimately caught by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper. The real Warren Jeffs is currently serving a life sentence for two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
The movie is currently filming in New Mexico.
