Regina King and Zazie Beetz are set to join a star-studded cast for The Harder They Fall, a new Western on Netflix produced by Jay-Z. Idris Elba and Jonathan Majors were announced last year.
Also joining are RJ Cyler, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, Delroy Lindo, and Lakeith Stanfield. It was written by Jay-Z’s longtime collaborator Jeymes Samuel (aka The Bullitts) and Boaz Yakin, with Samuel set to direct.
“The Harder They Fall” centers on outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors), who discovers that his enemy, Rufus Buck (Idris Elba), is being released from prison, so he reunites his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. The film will be produced by Jay-Z, with whom The Bullitts collaborated on “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack, and they will together re-team to make original music for “The Harder They Fall.” Other producers are James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender.
The buzz is that this is shaping up to be a headline-grabber!
