Actor Idris Elba is showing off his skills behind the camera with his new film “Yardie”.
The first trailer for the 45-year-old’s directorial debut was released Thursday, giving audiences a first look at the pulse-pounding gangster film.
“Yardie”, adapted from the novel by Victor Headley, is about a young man from Kingston, Jamaica, going to London, England, in the 1980s to find the man who assassinated his brother a decade earlier.
Aml Ameen, Sheldon Shepherd, Shantol Jackson and Stephen Graham star in the film.
“Yardie” will hit theatres in 2018.
