Dusan Brown to star in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'

Dusan Brown is set to feature in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom", alongside Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Denzel Washington is producing the Netflix film with Todd Black and Dany Wolf.

The feature is an adaptation of August Wilson's award-winning play of the same name.

It follows Ma Rainey, a famous blues singer as she makes a record in a studio in 1927 Chicago, where tension boils over among her, her white agent and bandmates.

The story explores the issues of race, art, religion and the exploitation of black recording artistes at the hands of white producers.

The play has been adapted by Ruben Santiago-Hudson and will be directed by George C Wolfe.

Glynn Turman, Colman Domingo and Michael Potts are also part of the cast.

Washington and Davis earlier starred opposite each other in Oscar-nominated "Fences" (2016).
