The New Regency project, which is set up under Regency’s deal with Fox/Disney, will have Russell direct from his own script.

Plot details are being kept under wraps on the movie, which will be Russell’s return to the director’s seat for the first time since Joy, in 2015, starring Jennifer Lawrence, which was a critical and commercial disappointment.

An April start of production was planned for the feature prior to the COVID-19 shutdown. The movie is now eyeing a January start in Los Angeles. Russell is producing with Matthew Budman.

Washington can be seen now in theaters in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. He will next be seen opposite Zendaya in drama¬†Malcolm & Marie, which was shot during the pandemic and picked up by Netflix.
