Denzel Washington dropped some major news recently. The two-time Oscar winner revealed that he has arranged to direct and executive produce all 10 of August Wilson’s plays for HBO, reports Deadline.
“I’m really excited about that — that [the estate] would put that in my hands and trust me,” Washington said. “That’s good enough for me. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
He added that Viola Davis will star in Fences. She and Washington starred on Broadway in a 2010 revival of the Pulitzer-winning show. The production earned them Best Actor and Best Actress Tony Awards and won for Best Revival of a Play.
