After taking a few years out to work on his mental health, BAFTA-winning actor, director, rapper and writer Adam Deacon is making a return to the big screen.

East London-born Deacon, 38, first captivated audiences back in 2006 with his breakout role in Noel Clarke’s hood drama, Kidulthood. In 2008, Deacon starred in the film’s sequel, Adulthood, before shifting gears and directing and starring in his own film, Anuvahood, in 2011. 

Anuvahood saw Deacon satirising many of the conventions of the “hood drama” movies he was known for, adding plenty of well-crafted jokes for good measure. The film was a hit across the UK, grossing well over £2 million at the box office.

Deacon has recently started work on his next directorial effort, Sumotherhood, the sequel to his decade-old cult classic. The movie will reunite stars from the first movie, with Richie Campbell and Jazzie Zonzolo returning alongside Deacon.

Sumotherhood, which is currently in production, is expected to hit cinema screens in 2022.
