"High and Low" marks the fifth collaboration between actor Denzel Washington and Spike Lee, and their first for nearly two decades, since 2006's 'Inside Man'.

The film is set to be an English-language remake of Akira Kurowasa's 1963 crime thriller.

The synopsis reads: "Gondo, a wealthy executive, desires to buy a shoe company. However, he faces challenges when his driver's son gets kidnapped and he is forced to pay a huge ransom in order to save him."

Apple Original Films tweeted a photo of Washington and Lee on Wednesday to announce that the project had officially begun work.

Ice Spice became a household name in 2023 following the release of her viral tracks 'Munch' and 'Boys a Liar' with fellow breakout star Pinkpantheress.

Soon after, she collaborated with Nicki Minaj on 'Barbie World', a reimagining of Aqua's 90s classic.
