Idris Elba is set to join Jonathan Majors in the revenge drama The Harder They Fall, a Netflix movie that will be produced by Jay-Z.
Samuel, also known as The Bullitts, is producing the project with Jay-Z, James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender. Samuel and Jay-Z, who previously collaborated on The Great Gatsby soundtrack, will write and produce original music for The Harder They Fall.
The story follows outlaw Nat Love (Majors), who, upon discovering that the man (Elba) who killed his parents two decades previously is being released from prison, reunites with his gang to track his enemy down and seek his revenge.
Elba also is starring in another Western drama, Concrete Cowboys, which began filming this year. In December, Elba will be seen on the big screen in Cats, the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the Broadway smash musical.
