Via his UpperRoom production company, John Boyega has gone into business with Netflix to produce non-English language films focusing on east and west Africa.

“I am thrilled to partner with Netflix to develop a slate of non-English language feature films focused on African stories, and my team and I are excited to develop original material. We are proud to grow this arm of our business with a company that shares our vision.”

With Africa a growth market for Netflix and Boyega invested in telling these important stories, this could be a fruitful relationship for all involved.
