Will Smith and Queen Latifah are reportedly teaming up to produce a Hip-Hop Romeo and Juliet for Netflix.
The Hollywood Reporter says the movie is described as a twist to the William Shakespeare classic set against “the urban rhythms of New York.” The story follows “a young waitress from the streets of Brooklyn and an aspiring musician from a wealthy family whose unconventional romance forces them to confront their life choices.”
This Netflix flick will reunite the two rappers turned actors. Queen credits Will for giving her “my first job on TV” when she guest starred on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
She also co-starred with his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith in 1996’s Set It Off, and then 21 years later on Girls Trip.
Will Smith, on the other hand, has been really busy these days. He stars in Aladdin, Gemini Man, and did some voiceover work in Spies in Disguise. And we can’t forget the highly-anticipated Bad Boys for Life is slated for a January 17, 2020 release.
