Denzel Washington and Spike Lee reunite on Apple Original Films’ thriller ‘High And Low’

Friday February 9, 2024. 05:08 PM , from Mac Daily News
Apple Original Films and A24 are partnering on “High and Low,” a thriller which reunites longtime collaborators director Spike Lee and actor Denzel Washington. A24 will release the film theatrically before its global streaming debut on Apple TV+.
Justin Kroll for Deadline:


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.
