British actor Idris Elba is set to star in a new movie ‘Harder They Fall’, produced by rapper J-Zay.
‘Harder They Fall’ is a western Netflix revenge drama that will feature only black people. Elba will star alongside American actor Jonathan Mayors.
According to Hollywood Reporter, ‘Harder They Fall’ narrates the story of an outlaw Nat Love, a character played by Mayors, who sets out for revenge after getting the news that the man (Elba) who murdered his parents is being released from prison.
Making a directorial debut with the revenge drama is British singer-songwriter Jeymes Samuel. He will co-produce the film alongside JAY-Z.
Samuel had before now worked with Jay-Z on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’. American film producers Jame Lassiter and Lawrence Bender will also be joining the duo.
