Meanwhile, Denzel Washington recently produced the August Wilson adaptation Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom for Netflix. The film stars Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman in his final performance.
In a four-star review of the film, NME said: “It’s a fitting swansong for the Black Panther actor, who gives a beautifully nuanced performance in a story that deftly explores racial inequality in the music industry. ”
Rami Malek will next be starring in the James Bond film No Time To Die. The actor recently called his character “very frightening” and called the experience “psychologically something that was not easy for me to tap into.”
