It was announced today that Star Wars' John Boyega has signed a deal with Netflix through his UpperRoom Productions.

With this deal, Boyega will develop non-English language films that will focus on West and East Africa. Netflix says that they "will develop film projects based on stories, cast, characters, crew, literary properties, mythology, screenplays and/or other elements in or around African countries."

"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."

David Kosse, VP of international film at Netflix, said, "Africa has a rich history in storytelling, and for Netflix, this partnership with John and UpperRoom presents an opportunity to further our investment in the continent while bringing unique African stories to our members both in Africa and around the world."
