Idris Elba Heads Back To The Big Screen

While many headlines are buzzing about the recent split between Idris Elba and his longtime girlfriend, the Beast of No Nation star is in negotiations for another screen gem.

The two-time SAG Awards winner is in talks to play the lead in a romantic drama based on Charlie Martin’s best-selling novel, The Mountain Between Us.

The female lead has yet to be determined, but the story follows two individuals who fall in love after a plane crashes and leaves them in the wilderness.

In addition to the adaptive flick, Elba also has four films currently in post-production: Star Trek Beyond, A Hundred Streets, Finding Dory and Disney’s live action flick, The Jungle Book.

Looks like the British hottie has a busy year ahead!
