Zendaya To Star In New Movie, Malcolm & Marie Alongside John David Washington

According to Deadline, Zendaya secretly filmed a brand-new movie from Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, titled Malcolm & Marie, that shot quietly amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Also starring John David Washington, the publication reports that the upcoming project has already finished production. Filming took place between June 17 and July 2 at the Caterpillar House, an environmentally conscious ranch in California. All filming was reportedly done with various acting and directing guilds’ guidelines and coronavirus safety protocols in place.

While the flick’s plot remains unrevealed, Deadline reports that the movie has some echoes of Netflix’s Marriage Story, while resonating a number of social themes that the world is experiencing.

Shortly after news of the production broke, Zendaya, 23, shared a steamy still from the film to her social media accounts, captioning the posts with the movie’s title.

The black and white shot features Washington, 35, in an unbuttoned white shirt with his tie undone as Zendaya, 23, leans over him with their lips mere inches apart.

The rush to make the film reportedly began shortly after Levinson was informed that Euphoria’s second season was shutting down production in mid-March due to the pandemic.

According to the report, Zendaya phoned the director to see if he could write and direct a movie during the shutdown, and within six days he had the general structure of the film ready to go.
