Daniel stars in Broken Kingdom with wife Rachael Leigh Cook, and he directed it as well. The movie debuts on Showtime May 15 at 8:30 pm. The moving story follows Daniel’s character and his friendship with a 14-year-old Colombian prostitute. It’s interwoven with Rachael’s character, an LA teacher dealing with a personal trauma.
Creating the movie took so much time, effort, and money that there’s an entire documentary about its making. Kingdom Come airs at 7 pm before Broken Kingdom on May 15.
In a recent interview with The New Zealand Herald, Daniel talked about what a labor of love Broken Kingdom turned out to be. It took three years and $100,000 worth of debt to make. "I'm grateful we didn't have kids early because that's the luxury you have when you don't have children — being able to do extraordinarily risky business ventures. I'm not sure I would have taken that risk as a father,” the actor said.
