At this point, there is only one question on our lips: is there anything that Daniel Kaluuya can’t do? Having hoisted himself to the position of one of the biggest names currently emerging out of the British creative sphere through stints in Black Panther and Jordan Peele’s Get Out, it is fair to say he is very much the moment. And, with a newly released trailer for Nope had us believing that we wouldn’t be getting any new content from a booked and busy Daniel for the foreseeable, he is here to let us know that his latest starring role is not the only project he has thrown himself into.
Revealing the dystopian thriller The Kitchen, Daniel has now let us know that he has been co-writing and producing a London-based drama which has been picked up by Netflix, Film 4 and is coming to us straight from his own production company, 59%. Set to star rapper and Top Boy star Kano, the drama, which is set in 2044, hopes to shed light on a dark and twisted social commentary that was once pondered by the actor and his friends in a barbershop some eight years ago, he lets his 528k followers know in an Instagram post featuring the front page of the project’s script. With harrowing realities and dramatised portrayals of a dark future for the capital set to play out in Daniel’s newest release, it is fair to say we can expect thrills and thought-provoking socio-political comments in equal measure upon its release.
While the only official details we have to go off come courtesy of the multi-facet’s most recent post, this exciting news has been enough to render us truly satisfied until 2023, which is when The Kitchen is said to be dropping.
