Idris Elba makes his feature directorial debut with Yardie, adapted from the cult novel by Victor Headley.

The film, which tells the story of a young Jamaican man whose violent past catches up with him in 1980s London, stars Aml Ameen, Sheldon Shepherd, Shantol Jackson and Stephen Graham, all of whom get their own character posters below.

Yardie is in UK cinemas August 24th.


The official synopsis reads:

Set in '70s Kingston and '80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he's not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow "the righteous path", he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on an explosive quest for retribution - a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).
