The cast includes Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, and Regina King.
Netflix gave a preview of the streaming giant’s upcoming films on Tuesday (Jan. 12). Among them, the highly anticipated western, The Harder They Fall.
Produced by Jay Z and written and directed by musician Jeymes Samuel, the film stars Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Regina King, Delroy Lindo, Lakeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz and Woody McClain.
The Harder They Fall follows the fictional character, Nat Love (Majors), as he seeks revenge on the man who murdered his parents. Besides signing on as a producer, Hov also created original music for the film.
The Covid-19 pandemic delayed filming, which began in March of last year in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Filming resumed in September but was paused again after one of the actors tested positive for coronavirus.
“What I love about movies is that they can make you feel every emotion,” King says in the Netflix teaser.
“And show you something you’ve never seen before,” adds Majors while clips from their film plays on the screen.
The Harder They Fall is one of 27 films headed to Netflix. See more in the video below.
