Denzel Washington is reportedly in talks with Fences producer Scott Rudin about playing King Lear in a London production.

According to a Daily Mail report, the double Oscar-winner said, “I’m talking to Scott. He brought up the idea of playing King Lear, but I don’t know yet — we’ll see.”

The actor played Don Pedro in Kenneth Branagh’s 1993 film Much Ado About Nothing.
