Denzel Washington’s return behind the camera sees him adapt August Wilson’s play FENCES, see the new trailer below.
Wilson has adapted the play for the screen which focuses upon Washington’s Troy Maxon, a sanitation employee who was once a baseball prodigy, and wife Rose (Viola Davis) who are facing issues as the regrets in their lives come to the fore amidst their son’s own ambitions. Washington and Davis both won Tony’s for their performances in the play and their reprisal of their roles adds a certain gravitas to the film which is hoping to attract awards buzz.
FENCES will arrive on Christmas Day in the States and lands in the UK in February.
