Idris Elba has previously worked behind the camera, most recently in Yardie in 2018. He’s returning to the director’s chair, this time with the added bonus of producing and starring in the refugee/prison thriller Infernus.

Elba will portray Donovan Kamara, a UN human rights activist dispatched to investigate accusations of refugees being illegally detained within a US black site prison, with a narrative by Tom Boyle and a screenplay by Robert Mark Kamen.

When the world’s most dangerous inmates escape, a seemingly straightforward task turns fatal. Kamara must work to securely extract the refugees while dealing with a brilliant criminal mastermind. It all sounds like something Gerard Butler would star in, but Idris Elba is no stranger to action.

While some of the material will be shot in London this autumn, Elba is also using it to promote the new TD Akuna Studios in Ghana.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to the director’s chair and working with Millennium Media.” “Infernus is a riveting thriller with a timely and personal human story at its heart,” he comments. “We have some exceptional characters thanks to Robert and Tom’s brilliant writing.” I’m very looking forward to this opportunity to work both in front of and behind the camera, filming across Europe and taking our production to Africa, which has an emerging cinema culture that we’re excited to assist.”
