Looks like Zendaya is returning with a more raw, artistic side in a new black-and-white movie as Tenet’s John David Washington’s lover in Malcolm & Marie, which is set to premiere on Netflix on February 5th.
Okay 2021, we see you! Malcolm & Marie stars Washington as a filmmaker and Zendaya as his girlfriend. The film follows a discussion of past lovers while the two return from a movie premiere.
Netflix even planned an Academy Awards campaign for the movie, which it bought for 30 million dollars during the virtual Toronto International Film Festival last year!

The film also formed one of the first few to be written and filmed amid the pandemic, with strict and safe precautions of course. It also marks another collaboration between Zendaya and Euphoria creator Sam Levinson.
The movie is also executively produced by Zendaya and Washington themselves, alongside Kid Cudi, Yariv Milchan, Kevin Turen, and Ashley Levinson.
Sam Levinson shared, ‘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.’
