Denzel Washington & Spike Lee Back Together Again For Apple Thriller

Written by on February 9, 2024

Longtime collaborators Spike Lee and Denzel Washington will be working with Apple Original Films and A24 on High and Low. Washington will star and Lee direct the A24 release which will released theatrically before its global launch on Apple TV+. The film is an English-language reinterpretation of Akira Kurosawa’s 1963 crime thriller. While its unknown how similar the High and Low plot will be, Kurosawa’s movie follows an executive at a Yokohama shoe company who becomes a victim of extortion when his chauffeur’s son is kidnapped by mistake and held for ransom. The project marks the fifth time the two Oscar winners have worked together, most recently on 2006’s Inside Man, along with Malcolm X, He Got Game and Mo’ Better Blues. According to sources, they started showing interest in working together on the project last spring, but the idea was tabled when the WGA and SAG AFTRA strikes forced production to halt on the Gladiator sequel starring Washington. With the strikes resolved and production on Gladiator wrapped, High Aand Low became priority for the two.
