Idris Elba Set to Star in Thriller “Bastille Day”

idris elbaAfter fighting criminals on the streets of London, “Luther” star Idris Elba is now ready to fight terrorists in Paris as he is set to star in the Vendome Pictures and Anonymous Content thriller Bastille Day.  Andrew Baldwin wrote the script and the director has not yet been set.  The story revolves around a U.S. operative who is tasked with interrogating and eventually making a young American boy “disappear” in order to avoid embarrassment to the U.S. government after the boy is linked as the prime suspect to a terrorist attack on the Paris metro. After a several more attacks, the operative realizes the boy is innocent and also may be the only link to the person actually orchestrating the attacks.

Though Elba still doing some work on his television series Luther, in the last year he has begun to ramp up his work on the feature side with big roles in Prometheus, Pacific Rim and Thor: The Dark World, which opened this past weekend and has already almost made $200 million worldwide. Elba can be seen next in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom which is already getting award season buzz for his performance as Nelson Mandela.
