LOS ANGELES - eMusicWire -- Nikko Austen Smith landed a large recurring role on Ava DuVernay's Queen Sugar for two seasons, which was previously announced to end after season 7. Austen Smith was also one of the leads in the second season of Facebook Watch's The Birch, and is set to appear in Cranked Up Films This Game's Called Murder alongside Ron Perlman, Vanessa Marano James Lastovic, Natasha Henstridge, Nicole Sousa, Tory Devon Smith, Judson Mills, Challen Cates, Annabel Barrett, Tyler Steelman and more. This Game's Called Murder was directed by Adam Sherman (Wristcutters: A Love Story) and is set to be released in theaters and on demand December 3rd.

This Game's Called Murder focuses on the Wallendorf Women's high heeled red shoe empire, specifically Jennifer Wallendorf (Vanessa Marano), the misunderstood social media power house hell bent on destroying her father's (Ron Perlman) corrupt business. Jennifer eventually gets mixed up with Cynthia (Annabel Barrett) and her crew, for a darkly comedic evening to remember. This marks Perlman's 9th film, with his most recent being She's Just a Shadow.

Austen Smith will play Winona, one of the bandit girls led by Cynthia, as they attempt to steal from those they deem fit, and give the bounty to their commune by whatever means necessary. Austen Smith is "ecstatic to be part of such an eccentric and intriguing project" and she can't wait to work with Sherman again. Her previously announced project, The Blue Rose, with Ray Wise and Danielle Bisutti is also in the same avant-garde genre.

You can watch Austen Smith on Hulu in Queen Sugar Seasons 3-4, as well as in The Birch on Facebook Watch, and catch her in This Game's Called Murder in theaters, on Apple TV, Prime Video, Fandango Now, and Google Play starting December 3rd. She will also host a Watch Party for the release on Twitter @nikkoausten.
