Jay-Z has inked a deal with Netflix to produce an original film titled,‘The Harder They Fall’.
The film follows the life of outlaw, Nat Love (Jonathan Majors, ‘White Boy Rick’, ‘Last Black Man In San Francisco’) who sets out to avenge his parent’s murder (with the help of his former gang members) upon finding out about their killer’s release from prison.
'The Harder They Fall' was first introduced to companies in 2016. The original version of the film featured Michael K. Williams, Erykah Badu, Rosario Dawson, Wesley Snipes and Jessie Williams. It is unclear whether Netflix will tap into these entertainers to reprise their roles.
‘The Harder They Fall’ is written and directed by Jeymes Samuel, who has previously collaborated with Jay-Z for, ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack. Assisting the production team are James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender (Power).
