David Oyelowo

With his next starring project, Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, officially on its way to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Brit actor David Oyelowo (who we recently interviewed HERE) will star in the Channel 4 (UK) drama titled Complicit

The project will be directed by Niall MacCormick (Albatross) from a script penned by Guy Hibbert (Omagh), and, per Oyelowo, is "about the politics of torture within MI5," adding further that it's "about that thin line that MI5 officers have to straddle in the wake of Guantanamo.

The "MI5" being the UK's internal counter-intelligence and security agency; and "Guantanamo" of course being the USA's detention/detainment/interrogation facility in Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba.

The project is listed as being in pre-production.

He's certainly a busy man these days (with the aforementioned The Paperboy, The Butler, Middle Of Nowhere, Lincoln and One Shot all on the horizon), collecting trophies along the way, like, most recently, the RiverRun International Film Festival's new Spark Award for rising talents.

ScreenDaily reports that Mr Oyelowo will be in New York this week "working with director Lee Daniels to test actresses “for chemistry” to play his love interest in The Butler."

Once again, be sure to read Jasmin's interview with David (HERE) if you haven't already. It's worth reading.
