Samuel L. Jackson and John David Washington to star in 'Piano Lessons'

The action of the drama will unfold in the 30s of the XX century. Production will be handled by Netflix.

The cast of the upcoming adaptation of August Wilson's The Piano Lessons has been expanded to include Samuel L. Jackson and John David Washington.

They will join the previously confirmed Ray Fisher (Zack Snyder's Justice League), Danielle Dedwyler (Ma Rainey: Mother of the Blues) and Corey Hawkins (Voice of the Streets). The film will be directed by Malcolm Washington from a script in which he adapts Wilson's play for the silver screen.

The 1987 play Piano Lessons tells the story of the Charles family from Pittsburgh, who are experiencing the effects of the Great Depression.
