In addition to his upcoming role in The Dark Tower, Elba was also slated to take part in the film, The Personal History of Rachel Dupree, alongside Naomie Harris. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, due to bigger projects calling, he’s no longer involved.

The initial announcement was made during the Cannes Film Festival. According to the film’s rep Michael Ryan, Idris “wanted to do it, he loved it…But he’s recently gotten some very high profile stuff with some very high profile money, so it was hard to find time to do it.”

The Personal History of Rachel Dupree, was adapted from the 2011 novel of the same name and is a period piece set in the American midwest. The story opens a window on the little-known history of African American homestearers and gives voice to an unexpected heroine.
