Emma Joins Idris Elba in A Hundred Streets

Star of the West End stage and Eponine in Tom Hooper’s critically acclaimed film adaptation of LES MISERABLES, Samantha Barks has joined Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton in Jim O’Hanlon’s A HUNDRED STREETS.

Billed as Britain’s answer to CRASH, the Leon Butler scripted A HUNDRED STREETS is an ensemble drama focusing on the viewpoints of characters all living in different areas of the city of London. Barks is set to play Lotte, the ex-girlfriend of Adam Bakri’s Jahmal, who re-enters his life just moments before he is forced to go on the run. Luther‘s Steve Mackintosh plays the man Jahmal is trying to evade.

Also joining the ever-expanding cast are Inspector Rebus himself Ken Stott, Nottingham born WILD BILL actor Charlie Creed-Miles, Tom Cullen, breakout star of indie hit WEEKEND, and Once Upon A Time In Wonderland‘s Emma Rigby who co-stars as Lotte’s best friend.

Creed-Miles is George, a childless taxi driver who’s recovering from a trauma, whilst Cullen is a friend of Arterton’s Emily, who could stand in her way of happiness.

As veteran actor Terence, Stott’s narrative concerns his relationship with a drug dealer, played by young actor Franz Drameh, and his determination to help the young lad get his life back on track.

A HUNDRED STREETS is currently filming in and around the capital and should hit screens sometime next year.
