The Netflix revenge drama will also star Jonathan Majors.

Idris Elba is set to join Jonathan Majors in the Netflix revenge drama The Harder They Fall. Jeymes Samuel, who is also known as singer-songwriter The Bullitts, will make his directorial debut with the all-black Western. 

The story follows outlaw Nat Love (Majors), who, upon discovering that the man (Elba) who killed his parents two decades previously is being released from prison, reunites with his gang to track his enemy down and seek his revenge.

Jay-Z, who collaborated with Samuel on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, will produce the movie, along with James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Samuel. Elba, who is repped by WME and the U.K.’s Artist Partnership, will next be seen in Universal’s holiday release of Cats and is currently filming James Gunn’s Suicide Squad sequel.
