Netflix has announced that Idris Elba's Concrete Cowboys will be released on its platform on April 2. The Western drama, which also features Stranger Things-fame Caleb McLaughlin and actor Jharrel Jerome, was acquired by the streaming service in October 2020.

Elba shared the news on his official Twitter handle. 

Based on the novel Ghetto Cowboy by author Greg Neri, the film marks the directorial debut of Ricky Staub, who has also penned the screenplay with Dan Walser.

Concrete Cowboys follows 15-year-old Cole (McLaughlin), who is taken to live with his estranged father Harp (Elba) in North Philadelphia, where he discovers the city's vibrant urban cowboy subculture, which flourishes despite the surrounding poverty, violence, and encroachment of gentrification.

The film, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2020, has been produced by Lee Daniels Entertainment in collaboration with Tucker Tooley Entertainment and Elba's Green Door Pictures.
