If you’re a fan of realistic romance dramas with complex characters and great dialogue, Zendaya and John David Washington will give you just what your heart desires, if we to believe the emotional first trailer for their upcoming project Malcolm & Marie.
Directed by Euphoria’s Sam Levinson, this quarantine-shot, black & white drama will give us a poignant take on modern love, and here’s what the official logline has to say about it:
“A filmmaker returns home with his girlfriend following a celebratory movie premiere as he awaits what’s sure to be an imminent critical and financial success. The evening suddenly takes a turn as revelations about their relationships begin to surface, testing the strength of their love.”
Zendaya and Levinson proved they’re a match made in heaven with their series Euphoria. After the production of this show was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they started working on a project they could easily shoot under the current safety protocols. John David Washington came on board, and Malcolm & Marie was born.
This project will have a brief theatrical run in limited theaters this month, before becoming available to Netflix subscribers on February 5th.
