Netflix unveils a new trailer for The Harder They Fall, teasing Idris Elba’s dangerous outlaw and Jonathan Majors’ quest for revenge against him. The film hails from musician Jeymes Samuel, also known by his stage name The Bullitts, in his directorial debut with a script he co-wrote with Boaz Yakin. The story revolves former slave-turned-cowboy Nat Love as he reassembles his former gang to track down outlaw Rufus Buck and his gang for the murder of his parents after he is sprung from prison.
The Harder They Fall features an ensemble cast comprised of Idris Elba as Rufus Buck, Jonathan Majors as Nat Love, Zazie Beetz as Stagecoach Mary, Lakeith Stanfield as Cherokee Bill, Delroy Lindo as Bass Reeves, Regina King as Trudy Smith, Edi Gathegi as Bill Pickett and RJ Cyler as Jim Beckwourth. Development on the film first got underway in mid 2019 when Majors and Samuel signed on to the project, though production would be delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which saw Cynthia Erivo, Wesley Snipes and Sterling K. Brown bow out. With production wrapped and the film gearing up for its premieres, Netflix is looking to build anticipation for the project.
