Idris Elba Drama ‘100 Streets’ Bought by Samuel Goldwyn Films

Samuel Goldwyn Films has bought the ensemble drama “100 Streets,” starring Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton, and plans a Jan. 13 release in theaters and on demand.

The film, which premiered in June at the Los Angeles Film Festival, explores the interconnecting stories of a range of city dwellers in London. Key characters include Elba as a former rugby star; his wife, played by Arterton; a small-time drug dealer (Franz Drameh); and a photographer (Tom Cullen).

Charlie Creed-Miles, Kierston Wareing, and Ken Stott also star. Jim O’Hanlon directed from a script by Leon F Butler.

Producers are Elba, Butler, Pippa Cross, and Ros Hubbard. Executive produces are John Caudwell, Xavier Alcan, Thomas R. Atherton, Justin Bache, Janette Day, Mark Denney, Natasha Dwyer, and Joe Hutchinson.

“‘100 Streets’ is a film that all of the filmmakers, including director Jim O’Hanlon and my fellow producers Idris Elba, Pippa Cross and Ros Hubbard, feel very passionate about and we are delighted to have found such an enthusiastic distributor in Samuel Goldwyn Films. We hope that this story of the ups and downs of city life, and indeed of life itself, will find a real resonance among the American audience,” said Butler.

The deal was negotiated by Peter Goldwyn of Samuel Goldwyn Films and Peter Rogers of UMedia on behalf of the filmmakers.
