Suicide Squad-fame Viola Davis and Black Panther-fame Chadwick Boseman are set to star in Denzel Washington's upcoming production, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

Washington will reportedly be producing the Netflix film, along with Todd Black and Dany Wolf. The film will be a big screen adaptation of August Wilson's award-winning play of the same name. It can be noted that Washington and Davis earlier worked together in 2016's Oscar-nominated film, Fences.

The story revolves around a famous singer named Ma Rainey who creates a record in a studio in 1927 Chicago, amidst the tension building up among her white agent and bandmates. It deals with the exploitation of black recording artistes at the hands of white producers and the racism behind it. 

The film, co-starring Glynn Turman, Colman Domingo and Michael Potts, will be directed by George C Wolfe, and the production is set to begin next month in Pittsburg.
