Daniel Kaluuya to Produce & Star in 'The Upper World' for Netflix

Daniel Kaluuya is set to star in and produce The Upper World, a film adaptation of a YA fantasy novel by Femi Fadugba. Netflix bought the rights to Fadugba's upcoming debut novel, which is the first in a planned series. The plot is summarized as follows:

Esso is caught in a deadly feud and on the verge of expulsion when he realizes he has an unexpected gift: access to a world where he can see glimpses of the past and the future. A generation away, Rhia is walking to football practice in 2035, unaware that the mysterious stranger she’s about to meet desperately needs her help to avert a bullet fired 15 years ago.

Other cast, a writer and director are TBA. Kaluuya will next be seen as Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
