"This is not the first time that Elba has been in the director's chair. He helmed an episode of Playhouse Presents in 2013. "
London, May 20 - British actor-rapper Idris Elba, who co-produced a track on rapper Jay-Z's album American Gangster, is excited about his directorial debut towards the end of the year.

Elba said he is working hard in the preparation to make that transition and is passionate about getting the chance to develop his own creative ideas, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

I'm directing something at the end of this year so (I'm) in preparation for doing that. My production company is busy at the moment and it's a new existence for me because it's not about me being in front of the camera, said Elba.

It's about me creating opportunities to develop ideas with other people, which is great. I'm loving that, added the 41-year-old.

This is not the first time that Elba has been in the director's chair. He helmed an episode of Playhouse Presents in 2013.

This will be Elba's feature film directorial debut.
