Can’t get enough of Idris Elba? Well, we got some good news for you. You’ll be able to find the 45-year-old actor in the upcoming film, Ghetto Cowboy.
The movie is based on the award-winning novel by Greg Neri, and it has the potential to do some damage at the Oscars. I know it’s EXTREMELY early to say, considering filming hasn’t even started, but the story is just that good.
“The pic follows 15-year-old Cole, who’s forced to live with his estranged father Harp (Elba) in North Philadelphia, where, despite the surrounding poverty and violence, he discovers the redemptive world of urban horseback riding.”
Ricky Staub will be making his feature directorial debut with this film, and Elba can’t wait to work with him.
“Ricky and Dan’s brilliant script combines the energy and grit of an urban movie with the poetry and romance of the urban cowboy way of life.”
We can’t wait to see the finished product. No word on when this film might be released, but we will keep you posted.
