Anthony Mandler directed the feature based on Andrew Pagana and Justin Thomas’s script
Surrounded is set five years after the Civil War, where former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine bequeathed by her late slaveowner father. It is a mean, dangerous world for an unaccompanied Black woman and so Mo travels into the deep frontier disguised as a man. After her stagecoach is ambushed, she is tasked with holding a dangerous outlaw captive and must survive the day when the bandit’s gang tries to free him.
The project has been in post-production since early 2021 with no word as to why there was a delay but “Williams’ untimely death could potentially be a factor.”
