A documentary based on Chadwick Boseman is due to drop on Netflix in just a few days.
'Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist' is available to stream from Saturday, April 17th.
Boseman passed away in 2020 as a result of colon cancer, which he had been diagnosed with in 2016.
For the latter performance, he posthumously won a Golden Globe and SAG award, and earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination.
He also played such real life figures as James Brown in 'Get On Up' and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in 'Marshall'.
Reads the official synopsis from Netflix: "Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Phylicia Rashad and more invite us into a conversation to explore Chadwick Boseman’s extraordinary commitment to his craft in an intimate look at the Oscar-nominated actor’s artistry, and the acting process which informed his transformative performances."
Davis would have acted opposite Boseman in 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom', which Washington produced. Spike Lee directed the late actor in 'Da 5 Bloods'.
Phylicia Rashad was Chadwick Boseman's acting teacher at Howard University in the late 1990s. Danai Gurira, who starred opposite the performer in 'Black Panther' also offers her thoughts on the thespian.
Participants will also include '42' director Brian Helgeland, 'Marshall' director Reginald Hudlin, 'Get On Up' director Tate Taylor, 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' director George C. Wolfe; 'Get On Up' and 'Black Panther' choreographer Aakomon “AJ” Jones, the composer, arranger and music producer of 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' Branford Marsalis; actor and 'Black Panther' dialect coach Andile Nebulane; and 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' co-stars Taylour Paige and Glynn Turman.
