Rami Malek Joins Denzel Washington-Led Thriller LITTLE THINGS June 18, 2019 ‘Mr. Robot’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and Rami Malek has reportedly signed on to join fellow Oscar winner Denzel Washington in the upcoming cop thriller ‘Little Things.’ The story follows a burned-out Kern County deputy sheriff named Deke (Washington), who teams with, Baxter, a crack detective from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, to reel in a wily serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past. Writer-director John Lee Hancock (‘The Highwaymen,’ ‘The Founder,’ ‘The Blindside’) is at the helm, with Mark Johnson producing. Filming is scheduled to kick off early September.
