The all-Black Western follows a man who is seeking revenge when he learns the man who murdered his parents is being released from prison. Elba portrays the murderer, as per Deadline. We’ve all seen the British actor portray a villain and he does one helluva job.

JAY-Z is producing the film alongside Jeymes Samuel, who is also making his directorial debut. The duo has collaborated in the past on The Great Gatsby soundtrack.


The Netflix series isn’t Idris Elba’s first Western cinema gig. He’s also starring in Concrete Cowboys, which is set to begin production this year.

But you can catch him on the big screen in Cats, which is slated to be released in December.
