The Talent Behind ‘The Harder They Fall’ Unveil the History of Black Cowboys and Outlaws

BGN interviews the team behind the Netflix film The Harder They Fall.

Featured in the interviews are writer/director Jeymes Samuel and actors Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Idris Elba, and Regina King.

When outlaw Nat Love (Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Elba) is being released from prison, he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Beetz), his right-and-left-hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast-drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler) — and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.

Directed by Jeymes Samuel; written by Samuel and Boaz Yakin; produced by Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender, and Jeymes Samuel; and featuring a red-hot soundtrack and a stunning all-star cast, including Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., and Deon Cole, with Regina King and Idris Elba — revenge has never been served colder.
