I’m a simple man. You tell me Vicky Krieps has a major part in a new movie, and I will absolutely make sure that I watch that movie. It’s as straightforward as that. Hot off her role in M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming horror/thriller Old and after her performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s masterful Phantom Thread, Krieps is literally the only person who matters who’ll be starring in the soon-to-be-released Netflix movie, Beckett. Okay, okay, fine, we’re also plenty excited about John David Washington continuing his recent stretch of leading man roles and Alicia Vikander joining him as his character’s girlfriend.

Anyway, you can check out the trailer right now.

But at one time, the cast of Lee’s latest movie would’ve looked very different. And while it’s safe to say that the film ended up with the right cast in the end, it’s hard not to daydream about what could’ve been – a film that would’ve featured Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, and more.
