Director Jeymes Samuel and producer Jay-Z are lining up an all-star cast of top Black talent for their upcoming Netflix movie The Harder They Fall, as Oscar-winning actress Regina King has joined the stylish Western along with Emmy nominee Zazie Beetz and her fellow Atlanta stars Lakeith Stanfield and Danielle Deadwyler, as well as this year’s Oscar hopeful Delroy Lindo, Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class) and RJ Cyler (White Boy Rick).
Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) and Idris Elba star in the all-Black Western, which follows outlaw Nat Love (Majors) as he rounds up his old gang to help him seek revenge when he discovers that Rufus Buck (Elba), the man who killed his parents two decades ago, is being released from prison.
Samuel is directing from a script he co-wrote with Boaz Yakin, and he’s also producing alongside Lawrence Bender, James Lassiter and Jay-Z. Samuel is a singer-songwriter who previously collaborated with Jay-Z on The Great Gatsby soundtrack, and the duo will be writing and producing original music for The Harder They Fall as well.
