Actor Mahershala Ali, who won an Oscar for her role in “Moonlight” and “Green Book,” will star in the thriller “Leave the World Behind” with Julia Roberts, after it was announced last year that the role would be given to Denzel. Washington.
Adapted from the novel of the same name written by Rumaan Alam, the Netflix movie will be written and directed by Sam Esmail, the creator of the series “Mr. Robot ”, according to fotogramas.es.
The feature film will be produced by Roberts, through his company Red Om Films, and by Esmail and Chad Hamilton, through Esmail Corp. Rumaan Alam will be the executive producer.
“Leave the World Behind” is the story of two families who do not know each other, but who spend a weekend together that turns out to be unsuccessful. Roberts will play the mother of the family who rents a house, and Ali will be the owner of the building.
Alam’s third novel, released last fall, explores the complexities of parenting, race, and social class.
