First Look at Joey King in 'Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs' - See It Here!

Check out your first look at Joey King in Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs!

Based on the book “When Men Become Gods” by Stephen Singular, the movie chronicles Jeffs’ (Tony Goldwyn) rise to power after the death of his father, Rulon Jeffs (Martin Landau). Within days of his father’s passing, Warren married all of his father’s wives and dictatorial control over his polygamist followers ensued.

He demanded women in the sect be completely subservient to men, banned laughing, and “reassigned” wives to other men at whim. Jeffs was eventually charged as an accomplice to rape for arranging underage marriages but fled prosecution. After a year-long manhunt, he was finally apprehended in Texas and brought back to trial. The courtroom testimony of two brave young women who escaped his reign of terror ensured he would finally be convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs gives an inside look at the psychology of a cult leader and those who blindly followed him. Even to this day with their leader behind bars, members of his polygamist cult still believe that he is the prophet chosen by God himself.

The TV movie premieres Saturday, June 28th @ 8PM ET/PT on Lifetime. Bigger pic inside…

    HBO’s Big Love (2006–2011), provides much insight into abuses of such doctrinal and dogmatic theology. In fact, the very morbid strictures enforcing extreme prudery by law of the last several decades, and eventually enforced around the world, are largely the work of one man of the same ilk, the Senator from Utah. Albeit, it is the opposite form of sexual slavery, (enforced prudery), but it is still sexual slavery.

    Yet little doubt that Ms. King’s superlative acting skills, delectable charm and winsome beauty, will help sell the prevailing narrative of the story.

    That Warren Jeffs is a sicko and apparently psychotic! I hope he rots in hell for what he did to those poor young children and women and the dogs that he had pushed into a hole and killed. He is a disgusting piece of crap! I am glad he was caught. Makes me sick. I can’t even believe I am watching this movie. It had to be hard for these women to be acting in this movie. I bet they felt the pain of what these women and children went through. Very good acting jobs though! I imagine that this is how they really were. My heart goes out to all of the victims!
