Star Wars’ John Boyega To Produce Non-English Language Films Based on Africa for Netflix

written by @kaylabrantley

Star Wars actor John Boyega has cut a deal with Netflix to produce non-English language projects based on African stories.

“I am thrilled to partner with Netflix to develop a slate of non-English language feature films focused on African stories,” Boyega said. “My team and I are excited to develop original material. We are proud to grow this arm of our business with a company that shares our vision.”

The 27-year-old British actor will carry out the projects with his production company UpperRoom Productions, which he launched in 2016.

The films will focus on East and West African mythology, books, and ancestors.

David Kosse, Vice President of International Film at Netflix, said of the news: “Africa has a rich history in storytelling, and for Netflix, this partnership with John and UpperRoom presents an opportunity to further our investment in the continent while bringing unique African stories to our members both in Africa and around the world.”
