Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington to reunite for the 1st time since 1993’s ‘The Pelican Brief,’ the two icons are teaming up in Netflix adaptation of Leave the World Behind, an upcoming novel by Rumaan Alam.
The film follows a husband and wife vacationing with their kids in Long Island when the owners of the house they’re renting return, citing a massive blackout in the city.
The families coincide in a tense living situation while cut off from all communication as the plot explores several relevant themes like race and class.
It will be written and directed by Mr. Robot creator, Sam Esmail. Washington and Roberts will also serve as producers of this film.
