Richmond, VA — Joshua Coates is the name you will soon be hearing about from Hollywood to the Big Apple.  He is a Movie Director, Producer, Playwright and a man after Gods heart.

His dreams are big and are becoming reality as non-stop supporting doors continue to open. His latest production and Motion Picture entitled INIQUITY can be found on the movie shelves in Walmart.

Coates says the movie is about choices with a comparison of David and Bathsheba. Coates says for those who don’t know the story, “It’s like King David who took his top Generals wife and had relations with her, she got pregnant, committed adultery, then tried to cover up his mess or his iniquity and ended up killing his friend.’

Ultimately, through this biblical story, it is also very real relevant and Coates updates it for his 2013 audience.

Take a look at this Clip.
