Idris and John are both starring alongside each other once again, with the pair having previously appeared together in The Suicide Squad.

In October 2022, Ilya Naishuller was made the director of the film, while in April this year Priyanka Chopra was added to the cast.

Paddy Considine, Stephen Root, Carla Gugino, Jack Quaid, Sarah Niles and Richard Coyle were all also announced as cast members last month, with filming beginning in London at the same time.

The film will be produced by Safran Company’s Peter Safran and John Rickard. Elba and Cena are both also executive producers, along with Marcus Viscidi.

The script was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, from draft by Harrison Query. 

According to Deadline, Heads of State is being described as ‘Air Force One meets Midnight Run.’

It comes after Idris said that ‘everyone wanted to fight’ him when he was growing up in London.

Dream team: Idris and John are both starring alongside each other once again, with the pair having previously appeared together in The Suicide Squad

As a child he moved from Hackney to Canning Town and joined Trinity Boys School, where he discovered his love for drama, but also found that the students wanted to fight with him.

Speaking to Peter Crouch and Chris Stark on That Peter Crouch Podcast, he said: ‘I got to school. I was a big lad. It’s a boy’s school.

‘Everyone wanted to fight me, or race me or wanted me on their side.

‘I played a lot of football, I loved it.’

At school, Idris found that he was not very academically minded, but began to realise that he had a talent for acting.

‘Drama was the sort of classroom that I didn’t have to fight or challenge everyone, I just loved drama,’ he said.

Suited and booted: John, 46, wore a white shirt with a loosened red tie which hung around his neck.

It was a drama school teacher who pushed the actor into considering a career in the arts.

He explained: ‘I was 12, by the time I was 15 she was like, “I really think you should take this into a career” and at that junction I liked school but I was not an academic.

‘I think I passed with maybe an A in drama, a B in Biology and a D in maths, you know, I wasn’t like academic but ultimately she was like, “if you really want to take the acting seriously I can help you” and she did.’

He went on: ‘I played basketball, football, cricket, hockey, rugby, judo and I was alright at all of it but drama was a bit of a left field for me.’
