Daniel Kaluuya is set to star in the Netflix adaptation of ‘The Upper World’.
The 31-year-old actor – who previously appeared in ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Get Out’ – is also set to help produce the upcoming project, which is based on Femi Fadugba’s debut novel.
The story focuses on the character of Esso, who is caught in a deadly feud when he realises he’s able to see glimpses of the past and the future, Deadline reports.
Tendo Nagenda, the vice president of Netflix Films, said: “Femi Fadugba. You may not know his name, but once you’ve read ‘The Upper World’ you won’t be able to forget it.
“That’s what happened to me after producer Eric Newman introduced me to the book. I can count on one hand the times I’ve connected with a novel so viscerally.
“It’s a rare feeling, made even more special when you also have the opportunity to bring such a story to life on film.”
