As previously mentioned, Idris Elba has been working on a movie adaptation of Beasts of No Nation, the adaptation of Uzodinma Iweala‘s 2005 novel Beasts, which will be appearing in selected movie theaters and on Netflix.
Idris plays a particularly fearsome warlord in West Africa, in the tale of a young boy whose family is destroyed by civil war, and he ends up joining a mercenary gang who seek to turn him into a soldier too.
A teaser trailer has been released, and it is very, very tense:
Beasts of No Nation is available on Netflix on October 16.
