We all know that feeling when one of our favorites is set to star in a forthcoming film, but there’s no mention of a U.S. release date.
Not this time. 100 Streets, starring Luther‘s Idris Elba, will premiere in the U.S. on January 13, 2017, courtesy of Samuel Goldwyn.
The film follows three storylines all happening within … wait for it … wait for it … 100 streets in London. That’s a lot of streets, a lot can happen.
Elba takes on the role of a former rugby star, with Gemma Arterton (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) playing his wife. Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey) portrays a photographer. There’s also a drug dealer in the mix, played by Franz Drameh.
We’d like to point out that in some cases the film is referred to as A Hundred Streets and other times it’s written out numerically with 100 Streets. We went with the latter because it’s the title used in the recent distributor announcement.
At the end of the day, it’s one square mile.
In the below clip we find Elba reading a bedtime story to his children in the film:
Elba is currently filming the TV miniseries Guerilla. We can look for him in 2017’s The Dark Tower, also starring Matthew McConaughey.
