Idris Elba Gets Harder For Netflix Western

Netflix’s first foray into the revenge western genre, Scott Frank’s limited series “Godless,” was a big success and so the streaming service is headed back to it for a new original film and have enlisted Golden Globe winner Idris Elba to star.

The all-black western follows the story of when outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that the man (Elba) who killed his parents two decades ago is being released from prison, he reunites with his gang to track his enemy down and seek his revenge.

Jeymes Samuel (“They Die by Dawn”), also known as the singer-songwriter The Bullitts, will pen and helm the project which Jay-Z, Samuel, James Lassiter, and Lawrence Bender will produce.
