Samuel L. Jackson, Danielle Brooks, & John David Washington to Star in 'The Piano Lesson' Movie & On Broadway

Samuel L. Jackson, Danielle Brooks, and John David Washington are all heading to Broadway next year… and then they’ll be turning the play into a movie!

The three actors are reportedly set to appear in a revival of the classic August Wilson play The Piano Lesson in 2022.

The Daily Mail‘s Baz Bamigboye reports that the production will be directed by Samuel‘s wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson.

A movie version of the play is also in the works with all three actors expected to appear. A different director will helm the movie, though it will not be the previously reported Barry Jenkins.

Denzel Washington will be producing the movie and he previously had told the New York Times that Barry was in talks to direct. The actor is planning on turning all 10 plays in Wilson‘s Century Cycle into movies and he has already completed Fences and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

BroadwayWorld reports that The Piano Lesson “is set in 1936 Pittsburgh and follows the lives of the Charles family as they deal with themes of family legacy and more, in deciding what to do with an heirloom, the family piano.”
