According to The Hollywood Reporter, Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson have both signed to star in No Good Deed – with a script from Aimee Lagos (who wrote and directed the incredibly strong 96 Minutes). It’s a cool project with a high concept kidnapping plot where a former District Attorney invites a stranger having car trouble into her home. There’s your good deed right there. No doubt it won’t go unpunished.

The best part of the news is that Elba’s Luther director Sam Miller will be making this his return to directing after a decade away from the feature film camera. His attempts of the late 90s were, not great, but his television work has been both extensive and impressive. Hopefully this will be a solid partnership and a great film – which is aiming for a Spring start.

It’s a safe bet that Henson will star as the former DA, but it’s unclear whether Elba will be the stranded man or another main character. But really, does it matter? It’s Idris Elba. No matter where they stick him here, he’ll crush the role. And by “they,” I mean “he,” because he’ll be Executive Producing as well.
