This past February, Idris Elba shared the first teaser for Yardie, his anticipated directorial debut. Now, Studio Canal UK has debuted another new, official trailer in support of the film.

Yardie is based on Victor Headley’s novel of the same name, and its screenplay comes to us courtesy of writers Brock Norman Brock and Martin Stellman. Set in the ’70s and ’80s, Yardie follows D — played by actor Aml Ameen — as he journeys through the streets of Kingston and London, attempting to put his life back together and leave the underworld behind. However, the childhood memories of his brother’s murder continue to haunt him, and following an encounter with the man who committed the act, D decides to seek revenge. The end result of D’s quest: a war with brutal London gangster Rico and a blood-soaked conflict with the streets that made him who he is.

You can watch the new trailer for Idris Elba’s Yardie above, and expect the film to hit UK cinemas in the near future.

Idris Elba will also star in, direct and score a new Hunchback of Notre Dame adaptation.
