Back in May, in an interview earlier today with BBC Radio 5, Brit renaissance man (director, writer, actor, producer, playwright, and who knows what else), Noel Clarke, who we've given a lot of pixels to on this site, revealed that he had written a sci-fi horror movie that was scheduled to begin production the following month, in June; but he refused to reveal much else about the project, not even the name, despite being pressed by the host of the show.

Back in May, in an interview earlier today with BBC Radio 5, Brit renaissance man (director, writer, actor, producer, playwright, and who knows what else), Noel Clarke, who we've given a lot of pixels to on this site, revealed that he had written a sci-fi horror movie that was scheduled to begin production the following month, in June; but he refused to reveal much else about the project, not even the name, despite being pressed by the host of the show.

Fast-forward to November, and we finally know more about that secretive project - the title, synopsis, release date, and who else is in it.

Revealed at the AFM (American Film Market), which got underway today, the film is titled Storage 24, and its synopsis reads:

London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie and Shelley accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki are at Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?

Clarke, who co-wrote the screenplay, stars in the film; he plays Charlie. Rounding out the starring cast are Antonia Campbell-Hughs as Shelley, Colin O'Donoghue as Mark, and Laura Haddock as Nikki.

The film is currently in post-production, and is scheduled for a UK release next June.

Clarke's been a really busy man over the last 2 or so years, doing just about everything it seems - acting, directing, producing, writing, etc; I'd say he's maybe the most prominent black British movie talent who's still unknown outside the UK - specifically here in the USA. We all know about Idris Elba, Sophie Okonedo, Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and others; but Clarke seems to have reserved himself strictly for UK audiences. Unlike his contemporaries, I don't believe he's starred in a single American studio-made and distributed film project; not that he has to, by the way; Just an observation. Besides, he seems to be doing just fine in the UK.

He starred in 2 projects this year, and will see 4 released next year (including Storage 24); 3 he wrote or co-wrote. He's also been prepping an MMA feature film, as well as a "high profile" sci-fi project - writing and starring in both.
