Idris Elba is returning to Netflix in a new film from singer-songwriter, producer and director Jeymes Samuel, a.k.a. The Bullitts. “The Harder They Fall” is produced by JAY-Z, James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Jeymes Samuel and you can see a short teaser below.
Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, LaKeith Stanfield, Delroy Lindo, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Danielle Deadwyler and Deon Cole star in this Western. Outlaw Nat Love (Majors) discovers that his enemy, Rufus Buck (Elba), is being released from prison, so he reunites his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge.
Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler)—and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.
WHile we don’t have a release date, we do know that the film will also be released in selected cinemas.
