Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is a film based on the play of the same name by author August Wilson. The film will have the acting of Chadwick Boseman along with the Oscar owner – actress Viola Davis. The film is set in Chicago in the 1920s when the jazz genre was very popular and will revolve around the stripping of black artists, and reflect the heavy racial problem of the time.
Actress Viola Davis shared with The New York Times about her filming experience with Chadwick Boseman: “A lot of actors think they are extremely important. An actor on Chadwick’s level is often very arrogant: what they want, and what they don’t want to do. But that’s not true for Chadwick. He completely ignored his ego and aura to focus on playing the role of Levee in the movie”.
After the image of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom was announced, netizens all over the world expressed their regret for the actor’s death, and predicted that the film would win major awards.
