Jonathan Majors (When We Rise, Hostiles, Captive State) will lead the cast for multifaceted artist Jeymes Samuel’s directorial debut, The Harder They Fall.
Samuel, a singer/songwriter/producer a.k.a. The Bullitts, will helm a story that sees Majors in the role of Nat Love, an outlaw who reunites with his gang to take out the man who killed his parents 20 years ago.
Samuel reunites with JAY-Z to produce following their collaborative soundtrack work on Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender also produce.
Majors will next appear in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods on Netflix in 2020, and later this year in Max Wrinkler’s bareknuckle drama, Jungleland.
