Julia Roberts & Denzel Washington to Reunite On Screen in Upcoming Netflix Movie!

Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington will be starring in the upcoming movie Leave the World Behind, which has been set up at Netflix.

The two actors worked together almost three decades ago in the movie The Pelican Brief and this is a long-awaited reunion!

Leave the World Behind is based on the novel by Rumaan Alam and the film will be written and directed by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. The novel will be published this fall by HarperCollins.

Here is the film’s synopsis, via Deadline: “Amanda and Clay’s aspirational vacation with their teenage children is interrupted by the arrival of a middle aged couple who own the holiday home and who have fled an unprecedented blackout in the city. When the internet, television and radio stop working, as does the landline, they have no way of finding out what is happening. As strange sonic booms shatter the peace of the countryside, and animals start to migrate in strange ways, the physical and mental health of the families begins to disintegrate. The renters are upscale and White; the owners are upscale and Black. The issues of race and clash become distractions to the more alarming things are happening all around them.”

Julia will be playing Amanda while Denzel will be playing the owner of the home.

See the super rare photo that Julia shared with her husband Danny Moder to celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary.
