Idris Elba Is Everywhere

Star Trek Beyond co-star Idris Elba has been a very, very busy man. The actor-musician opened for Madonna the other night when her Rebel Heart tour touched down in Berlin, Germany, and he's currently co-starring in the acclaimed Netflix movie Beasts of No Nation. He'll return to his signature role as London detective John Luther in a Luther, a three-hour telemovie set to debut December 17 on BBC America.

And there's more. He'll be heard in the animated features Finding Dory, Zootopia and The Jungle Book. Also wrapped are Bastille Day, a thriller set in Paris, and A Hundred Streets, a drama about intersecting lives that also stars Gemma Arterton, Samantha Barks and Ken Stott. Elba also co-prodcued A Hundred Streets and, wearing his producer hat, is aiming to transform Marc Olden's Poe Must Die into a film trilogy.

All of the feature films (with the exception of Poe Must Die) are expected to be released throughout 2016. Keep an eye on for trailers and additional details.
