Popular Hollywood actor, Idris Elba, is set to star in an all-black movie, first of its kind, titled The Harder They Fall.

In the movie, Elba will be playing an antagonist role and it will also feature Jonathan Majors. Jeymes Samuel will be directing the film.
A summary of the story shows it is centred around a convict called Nat Love who is seeking to avenge the death of his parents.
It should be noted that Nat Love is said to be one of the earliest black cowboys whose exports were considered legendary.
