Over the course of ten days and 435 miles, an unbreakable bond is forged between pro adventure racer Michael Light (Mark Wahlberg) and a scrappy street dog companion dubbed Arthur. Based on an incredible true story, ARTHUR THE KING follows Light, desperate for one last chance to win, as he convinces a sponsor to back him and a team of athletes (Simu Liu, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Ali Suliman) for the Adventure Racing World Championship in the Dominican Republic. As the team is pushed to their outer limits of endurance in the race, Arthur redefines what victory, loyalty and friendship truly mean.

About Arthur the King Movie:

Arthur the King is an upcoming American adventure film directed by Simon Cellan Jones, written by Michael Brandt, and starring Mark Wahlberg, Simu Liu, and Juliet Rylance. It is based on the 2016 non-fiction book Arthur – The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find a Home by Mikael Lindnord.

Baltasar Kormákur was initially going to direct the film but dropped out due to schedule conflicts.

The casting of Mark Wahlberg was announced in July 2019. In December 2020, it was announced that Simu Liu, Ali Suliman, and Rob Collins were cast in the film and that Simon Cellan Jones would replace Kormákur.

Paramount Players was initially attached as a distributor but left the film for unknown reasons and was replaced by Lionsgate in June 2020. Filming was planned to begin in Puerto Rico that fall. That December, it was reported that Lionsgate had also left the film.

Filming instead began in January 2021, in the Dominican Republic. In November 2023, Lionsgate rejoined as a distributor and set a release date of March 15, 2024.
