Idris Elba is set to star in an upcoming all-black Netflix Western titled, The Harder They Fall, which is being produced Jay-Z. More deets inside…

An all-black Western is coming to Netflix! And two of our faves are involved.

British hottie Idris Elba is ready to saddle up as the lead star in the upcoming Western titled, The Harder They Fall, and Jay-Z is producing it. The 47-year-old actor will be joining actor Jonathan Majors in the project.

Jeymes Samuel, who’s known as singer-songwriter The Bullitts, will make his directorial debut on the project. Jeymes will also be producing the project alongside Hov, film producer/Will Smith's long-time business partner James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender. Jeymes collaborated with Boaz Yakin for the film’s script.

 

 

Not only that, Jay-Z and Jeymes will collaborate to write and produce original music for the film. They previously collaborated on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Don't be surprised if you see Idris on the soundtrack since he raps. Ha!

Here’s a synopsis of the film: 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.

Idris is loving Western movies right now. He’s also starring in another Western drama titled, Concrete Cowboys, which he just started filming this year. He's also filming Suicide Squad 2, where he replaces Will Smith's character. The YBF actor will also hit the box office next month in family comedy titled Comedy, inspired by the Broadway musical.
