Although he might not be James bond just yet, Idris Elba has got another sick sounding project in the works. He is reportedly set to direct a new film called ‘Yardie’ about Jamaican drug dealers in London.
The movie will be the East Enders directorial debut and will work from a script by Brock Norman Brock, who co-wrote the critically acclaimed ‘Bronson’.
It will be an adaptation of Victor Headley’s novel ‘Yardie’, the synopsis of which you can read below:
“D, a courier carrying cocaine from Jamaica to London, decides to go it alone and disappears into the mean streets of Hackney carrying a kilo of white powder that his erstwhile friends are anxious to recover. But D’s treachery will never be forgotten – or forgiven.”
Sounds like this could be a must-watch when it hits the big screen.
