Idris Elba Smolders in Shirtless Photo Shoot a He Talks Fears of Burnout: 'It's Unhealthy to Have That Much Going On'
Idris Elba is opening up about how success has changed his life, and the toll all his hard work has taken on him. "When you break it down like that, it's unhealthy to have that much going on," the actor tells his The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau for Interview Magazine's August cover. "I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything, but I sleep less, I'm constantly thinking, I'm constantly multitasking, and I really don't know what the effects are going to be when I'm older," he adds. "I don't ever stop. Not because I'm greedy or anything, but I’m always creating,

Review: A Hundred Streets (L.A. Film Fest 2016)

Disparate people of different race, background, and social status intersect and bounce off each other in Jim O’Hanlon’s A Hundred Streets, a London-set film that attempts to make grand statements about life but ends up being a middling yet still somewhat enjoyable trek through key moments in their lives.

Former rugby superstar Max (Idris Elba) struggles with sobriety after he screwed his nanny and became estranged from his wife Emily (Gemma Arterton), who’s stuck dealing with their children and her own rebound relationship. A young drug dealer named Kingsley (Legends of Tomorrow’s Franz Drameh) feels trapped in his life in the blocks and yearns for a way out, spending his nights philosophizing with harboring hopes of using his creativity in a better line of work. Goofy cabbie George (Charlie Creed-Miles) just wants to be able to adopt a child to make his wife happy. I don’t know about you,

Idris Elba frontrunner for lead in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower adaptation

Idris Elba’s name is being tossed around as the potential lead in the big screen adaptation for Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. According to Deadline, he is now being called the frontrunner to play Roland Deschain, a role said to be narrowed down to Elba and Javier Bardem.

The Dark Tower will mark the first of multiple films to be based on King’s series of eight western-fantasy novels. Provided Elba does lock down the role of Deschain, his character will face off against The Man In Black, the lead villain whom Matthew McConaughey is currently in talks to play.

Already committed to The Dark Tower is Danish director Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [the Swedish film version]). He has been working with Anders Thomas Jensen (Election Night) on a rewrite of the script, last drafted by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner.

Gemma Arterton Will Welcome The Second Coming In Like A Virgin

Having nurtured a string of short projects into development and before the cameras, actress-cum-director Catherine Shepherd is ready to graduate into the league of feature films, with her directorial debut coming in the form of Like a Virgin. Blending elements of drama, comedy and religion, the picture has barely made it off the drawing board, though according to Deadline, it’s already secured Gemma Arterton to star.

Centring on a promiscuous singleton called Mary (Arterton), Shepherd’s first foray behind the lens will follow our protagonist as she indulges in alcohol-fuelled trips into town. Getting drunk and hooking up with strangers, Mary embraces her hollow life with both hands, burning the candles at both ends. That all comes to a grinding halt though, when the angel Gabriel descends from heaven and informs that, much to her surprise, Arterton’s lead will carry and give birth to the next messiah.

Gemma Arterton Starring In Like A Virgin

After working on several short projects, actress Catherine Shepherd is headed into the feature director’s chair for the first time on a new film called Like A Virgin, and she’s recruited Gemma Arterton to star. Arterton will play Mary, a young woman who enjoys frequent nights out on the town, getting blind drunk and hooking up. But while still sozzled one raucous night, she gets a surprise visitor – no, not the local constabulary, but the Angel Gabriel who, in true Biblical style, informs her that she’s been chosen to birth the next Messiah. Which, somewhat understandably, comes as a bit of a shock. The big question is whether a girl who hasn’t seemed ready to grow up herself is prepared to carry and raise the next saviour of the world?
