While ‘Chewing Gum’ might not be returning anytime soon, Michaela Coel’s new musical is headed to Netflix, ScreenDaily reports. A modern-day musical, “Been So Long” follows a dedicated single mother (Coel) in London, who, on an unusual night, meets a handsome, but “troubled” stranger, played by Arinzé Kene. Directed by BAFTA-winning director Tinge Krishnan, the feature film is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed play by Che Walker and actor Arthur Darvill, which premiered at The Old Vic.
The multi-million dollar acquisition deal is the largest Netflix has made to gain the rights of a UK film. No word on when the film will be available for streaming yet.
