Idris Elba and Naomie Harris starring in The Personal History Of Rachel Dupree
They shared the screen as Nelson and Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, and now Idris Elba and Naomie Harris are planning to bring their chemistry to a new film, novel adaptation The Personal History Of Rachel Dupree.
Claire McCarthy wrote and will direct the indie drama, which draws from Ann Weisgarber's book. Harris will be the title character, pregnant with her latest child even as she worries about the five she already has with her untrustworthy husband, played by Elba. Worried about how her family will survive the incoming cold winter, she's forced to take matters into her own hands, preparing to fight for her survival and that of her children. Her husband, meanwhile, seems set on her staying put and focusing on his ambitions.
