A Hollywood romance starring Euphoria’s Zendaya is coming to Netflix

‘Malcolm & Marie’ has been acquired by the streaming service for $30 million

An ode to the great romances of Hollywood, starring Zendaya and John Washington, is coming to Netflix in 2021. Malcolm & Marie, from the Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, follows a filmmaker (Washington) and his girlfriend (Zendaya) on their way home from a film premiere as they discuss former lovers and past relationships.

Netflix is planning an Academy Awards campaign for the black and white film after the streaming service acquired it for $30 million (£22 million) following the Toronto International Film Festival in September. 

Rapper Kid Cudi and Yariv Milchan join as executive producers, while Levinson acts as writer and director. Levinson previously worked with Zendaya on the influential teen drama, Euphoria, which earned the latter an Emmy for Best Lead Actress this year.

Levinson said at the time of Netflix’s acquisition of Malcolm & Marie: “I am so grateful to this cast and crew, many of whom are my Euphoria family, for coming together during such uncertain times. We felt privileged to be able to make this film together and we did so with a lot of love. We are all thrilled that it has ended up with Netflix which is unparalleled in allowing filmmakers the freedom to tell their stories that reach audiences all over the world.”

Malcolm & Marie is due to premiere February 5 on Netflix.
