Been So Long

Screen Daily reports that Netflix has pre-bought the worldwide rights to London-set musical Been So Long, starring Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum) and Arinzé Kene ( Eastenders and The Pass).

“Been So Long” is a neon soaked, modern day romance set on the streets of London’s musical hot-bed of Camden. We follow Simone (Michaela Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger (Arinzé Kene), igniting old and new feelings. Set against the backdrop of an ever-changing city, “Been So Long” is a fresh take on love, life and moving on. 

Supporting cast includes Joe Dempsie (Game Of Thrones), George MacKay (Captain Fantastic), Ronke Adekoluejo (NW), Luke Norris (Poldark) and Ashley Thomas (24: The Legacy).

The multi-million dollar deal is understood to be the largest single acquisition of a UK film by the streaming giant.

The project was developed by the BFI, and co-financed Film4 and the BFI with funding from the National Lottery.
