Jessica Sutton On Her New Film “Rogue,” “Motherland: Fort Salem,” Learning Accents & More

Rogue is a new film starring Megan Fox (Transformers franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise), Philip Winchester (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Jessica Sutton. The film was directed by M.J. Bassett (Silent Hill: Revelation, Solomon Kane) who co-wrote the film with her daughter Isabel Bassett, making her feature screenwriting debut. In Rogue, Fox tackles a thrilling new role as a battle-hardened mercenary in this explosive action saga. As team leader O’Hara, she leads a lively squad of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels — and the horde of ravenous, enraged lions they encounter on their misson.

Aside from Rogue, the aforementioned Jessica Sutton stars in the Freeform drama series Motherland: Fort Salem from Claws creator Eliot Laurence and Gary Sanchez Productions. Sutton portrayed the fan-favorite role of Mia in the hit Netflix film The Kissing Booth opposite Joey King. Her previous film credits include supporting roles in Netflix’s Inside Man: Most Wanted and Sony’s Escape Room. She notably got her start in National Geographic’s four-part mini-series Saints & Strangers.
