Apple TV+ has landed a new spy film starring Idris Elba.
Reported by Variety, Elba will both star and produce the film. The movie does not have a title yet but is being described as a "spy movie with romance" and will be set somewhere in Africa. The script is written by Travon Free, best known for his work on "The Daily Show."
Last month it was reported that Idris Elba's production company, Green Door Pictures, signed a first-look film and television deal with Apple. Under the deal, Elba would produce new original series and films for the streaming service, and it appears that a spy romance will be one of the first to come out of that partnership. The star is also involved with a number of other projects to hit movie theaters and Netflix in the near future.
It has not been announced when the new spy film starring Elba will premiere on Apple TV+.
