Netflix has released the first teaser for The Harder They Fall, a star-studded Western set to debut in select theaters and on the streamer this fall.
The film follows outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors), as he learns that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba)—who killed his parents two decades ago—is being released from prison.
Nat subsequently rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those joining him in his quest include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz); the hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi); the fast-drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler) and an additional ally who turns out to be an adversary.
While Nat and his gang are formidable, so is Buck, who has no intention of going gently into that good night. Indeed, he has his own unnerving crew, which includes “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and this bunch is not one that knows how to lose.
The Harder They Fall was directed by musician and filmmaker Jeymes Samuel (They Die by Dawn), from a script he penned with Boaz Yakin. The film was produced by Shawn Carter (aka Jay-Z), James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Jeymes Samuel. Delroy Lindo, Danielle Deadwyler, Damon Wayans Jr. and Deon Cole also star.
