SAN FRANCISCO - EntSun -- "I'm Charlie Walker", the highly anticipated big screen chronicle on San Francisco living legend Charlie Walker who made 5 Million Dollars in 30 Days in 1971 set for release in 2022

"I'm Charlie Walker" chronicles the true story of the Black hero who faced discrimination as he strived to save San Francisco's coastline from ecological ruin.

"I'm Charlie Walker" stars NAACP Image and Critics Choice Award nominated actor Mike Colter ("Evil", "Luke Cage") as trucking and construction entrepreneur Charlie Walker. In 1971, two oil tankers violently collided off the San Francisco Coast spilling millions of gallons of crude oil creating an environmental disaster.

Against all odds, Charlie was able to secure one of the most lucrative contracts to clean the coastline that threatened much of the San Francisco Bay. Charlie accomplished this with only one truck, an incredible work ethic and a loving wife and family whose faith in Charlie never wavered.

The films hot button topics and themes were a bit controversial for some studios when it came to financing the film some time ago. So an independent financier with an unwavering passion to tell Charlie's story stepped up to the plate to make the movie.

"Now that we have finished post production on the film those same studios are showing interest in the film", says producer Mark Harris. "It seems the  events of the past few years changed people's thoughts about telling a story about a Black living legend who made 5 million dollars in 30 days without the help of a "white savior".

The All Star cast also includes Emmy Award® nominated actor Dylan Baker (''The Good Wife'', "Hunters"), Safiya Fredericks ("Sorry to Bother You"), Emma Caulfield Ford ("WandaVision"), Mark Leslie Ford ("Velvet Buzzsaw"), Carl Lumbly ("Falcon and the Winter Soldier"), Steven Wiig ("Milk"), Greg Cipes ("Fast & The Furious"), Monica Barbaro ("Top Gun 2")
