Idris Elba Steps Into The Director’s Chair

idrisdirectIdris Elba may not have been what the doctor ordered for Quentin Tarantino but he is certainly good enough for Sky TV. It was revealed that Elba was turned down for the role of Django, because he was British. But Elba will not be in front of the camera but behind it.

He has taken on the role of director for his upcoming project. Elba expressed his desire to work with the BBC on a feature film project 2 ½ years ago but nothing ever came of it. Now Sky TV has listed his project, The Pavement Psychologist as one of their featured TV films this year.

This will be Elba’s TV directorial debut. Elba also wrote the screenplay for it. The short drama looks at the relationship between an enthusiastic homeless man, played by Nonso Anozie, and an easygoing businesswoman, played by Anna Friel.  Other acclaimed Playhouse Presents dramas are, Walking The Dogs and A Young Doctor’s Notebook.

According to Sky TV, the project is set to air in the spring.
