Stormzy set to star in the final chapter of the Kidulthood trilogy

The final film in the series written by Noel Clarke is called Brotherhood

Stormzy has announced that he is set to star as new character Yardz in Brotherhood, the final part of the west London-set trilogy begun by 2006’s Kidulthood and continued with 2008’s Adulthood.

The five-week shoot began in west London last week, on November 23, and other than Stormzy the film will star returning cast members Arnold Oceng, Red Madrell and writer Noel Clarke.

The rising grime MC will make his acting debut in the film, details for which were announced in October. Lionsgate is set to release in the UK in 2016.

Stormzy wrote on Twitter, “Kidulthood, Adulthood & now…BROTHERHOOD. Gassed to reveal I’ll be making my acting debut in 2016”. See the tweet below:

Kidulthood screenwriter Noel Clarke revealed via a live tweeting session in October that he had completed the script for Brotherhood, the third film in the Kidulthood series.

Clarke wrote and starred in 2006’s Kidulthood, an acclaimed British drama film about the lives of a group of west London teenagers. He then wrote, directed and starred in the 2008 sequel Adulthood, which won him the Orange Rising Star Award at the following year’s BAFTAs.

Both films also starred Adam Deacon, who in July was found guilty of harassing Clarke after aiming a tirade of criticism and death threats against his former co-star on social media.
