Agu, a young boy in an unnamed West African nation, is recruited into a unit of guerrilla fighters as civil war engulfs his country. Haunted by his father’s own death at the hands of militants, Agu is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new Commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started- a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact.Not hard to guess that Elba comes on board to play the above mentioned Commander, right? Anyway, let us also add that Red Crown is funding the project, and that Elba will also produce the movie together with Amy Kaufman, Daniela Taplin Lundberg and Riva Marker. We’ll keep an eye on Beasts of No Nation, make sure you stay tuned!
