If you’re wondering what Oscar Award winning actor Denzel Washington’s next move is… he’s moving to “Inner City.”

That’s the name of the new movie he’s working on with Colin Farrell, as well as Ashton Sanders from “Moonlight.”

The “Fences” star (and director) plays a tough attorney who is thrust into a mystery when his law firm partner suffers a heart attack,

Washington plays a hard-nosed liberal lawyer named Roman J. Israel, who’s been fighting the good fight while others take the credit. When his partner has a heart attack, Israel suddenly takes on the role of the firm’s front man. He soon uncovers details about the crusading law firm’s history that run afoul of his values of helping the poor and dispossessed, and finds himself in an existential crisis that leads to extreme action.
