Netflix has announced that Idris Elba-starrer Concrete Cowboys will release on its platform on 2 April.

The Western drama, which also features Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin and actor Jharrel Jerome, was acquired by the streamer in October 2020.

Elba, known for films such as Thor, Molly's Game and Beasts of No Nation, shared the news in a post on Twitter on Monday.

"Concrete Cowboy coming to Netflix 2 April. You are who you ride with @strongblacklead @NetflixFilm #concretecowboynetflix," he wrote alongside the film''s poster.

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,

It 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.
