Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, starring Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela, in a film directed by Justin Chadwick, which highlights Mandela's early life, education and 27 years in prison.
Likely another Oscar contender. Producers have said that the film will have an "epic sweep," from a script written by Gladiator, Shadowlands and Les Miserables writer, William Nicholson.
South African stars Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa, Zolani Mkiva, Jamie Bartlett, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Deon Lotz and Terry Pheto, round out the cast.
The film is said to be a definitive work on the life of Nelson Mandela.
