Rising star Abraham Attah has been announced in the lineup for Marvel’s reboot of the Spiderman franchise, due out in 2017.
It’s a big break for the actor, whose debut performance saw him star alongside Idris Elba in West African child soldier drama Beasts of No Nation.
Attah received critical acclaim for his performance in the drama, taking the Best Actor prize at the Venice International Film Festival.
He was discovered by chance by the film’s director at a football match in Ghana. (BBC)
