Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman are set to star in the adaptation of August Wilson’s 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' to debut on Netflix in 2020. The movie will be produced by Denzel Washington and it will tell the story of Ma Rainey, a famed blues singer, as she makes a record in a studio in 1920s Chicago, where tensions boil over between her, her white agent and producer and the bandmates.

The movie will also star Glynn Turman (Colonel Taylor from A Different World l) and Fear the Walking Dead’s Colman Domingo and is set to begin shooting next month in Pittsburgh.
