John David Washington has a new movie coming to Neflix in August, called Beckett. Here is a first look at it.

Not giving much away, but it looks like there’s going to be a lot of action in it. The basic synopsis is :

A vacationing couple fall trap to a violent conspiracy with tragic consequences.

It is written and directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino and stars John David Washington, Alicia Vikander, Boyd Holbrook and Vicky Krieps. Originally it was titled Born to be Murdered.

John really got noticed in BlacKkKlansman and then Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which was supposed to be a saviour of the cinema last year, but failed to hit the numbers.

Christopher Nolan recently endorsed John David Washington for the role of Green Lantern, but we now know that role is going to someone else. Christopher was asked about directing Green Lantern :

“I think my DC days are over, I think [Washington] would be an excellent choice. He certainly gets my vote.”

John was asked about Tenet 2 and he said :

“I hope we get to do it again, I hope we get to explore more, because I think we found something really unique.”

The new movie, Beckett is due to start streaming on 27th Aug 2021.
