Watch: Idris Elba Invades Taraji P. Henson’s Home in ‘No Good Deed’ Trailer

Idris Elba has gone from Nelson Mandela to a scary smooth home invader.

The actor stars alongside Taraji P. Henson in the Sam Miller-directed “No Good Deed,” for which the trailer was released Thursday. Henson plays a former district attorney whose home and children are threatened when Elba’s character talks his way into her house under the guise of having a broken-down car.

Elba also exec produced the Screen Gems thriller with Rob Hardy. Aimee Lagos wrote the screenplay. Will Packer produced “No Good Dead,” which was originally set to release earlier, but was pushed back to avoid conflict with another Packer title, “Ride Along.”

Elba’s profile has continued to rise in Hollywood, especially since starring in “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” He was featured in “Thor: The Dark World” and will voice Shere Khan in Disney’s “The Jungle Book” reboot.

No Good Deed” is set to bow Sept. 12.
