It’s been a while since Fences, but Denzel Washington is about to assail cinemas again in – and as – Roman J. Israel, Esq.
From the writer/director of Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy, this crime drama sees Denzel as the titular defense attorney, who possesses an amazing ability to piss of pretty much everybody he has dealings with. Mind you, it would be hard not to get bent out of shape when others keep stealing your credit for things.
But when circumstancs lead to him taking the reigns of the law firm that he works at, discoveries lead him to an existential crisis -and a rather estreme response.
We could watch Denzel doing his dishes, so the trailer of this has us very excited. Not because he does dishes in it – he doesn’t – but because he goes full-on Denzel. What a sight!
Roman J. Israel, Esq., which also stars Colin Farrell, is releasing in the U.S. early November, and hopefully not long after in Australia (in other words, we couldn’t confirm the date at this time.)
