Daniel Kaluuya is working on a "dystopian" new film for Netflix.

The 'Get Out' and 'Black Panther' star's project has had the green light, and is set to feature 'Top Boy' actor Kane Robinson in the lead role.

The new project is called 'The Kitchen'.

It is set in the future, but not too far ahead, in 2044.

In the film's future, all forms of social housing have been eradicated.

As a result, London’s working class has been forced to live on the outskirts of the city in temporary housing.

Izi is the main character with 12-year-old Benji, and the film follows their attempt to survive.

Top Boy’s Kane will be joined by newcomer Jedaiah Bannerman.

The project has been a labour of love for Kaluuya, he revealed on social media.

He posted a picture of his script, writing: ‘This one has been 8 years in the making with director @kibwetavares and producer Dan Emmerson, started from a conversation in a barbershop when I found out kids were doing million pound heists in a minute for £200 to a dystopian London in the future.

‘Production just started on The Kitchen. Proud to be co-writing (w/ Joe Murtagh) and producing on this one through my production company 59%, DMC film, Film 4 & @netflixuk @netflix.

‘Starring @therealkano and Jedaiah Bannerman. Looking forward to you guys taking it away with you. Outside soon. In a bit.’

He's keeping busy though, as Daniel starring in another horror film called 'Nope', alongside Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun.

The synopsis says: ‘The residents of a lonely gulch in inland California bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.’

Sounds spooky!
