Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) will take part in the filming of the British biographical drama Farming. She will be accompanied by Gugu Embata-Ro (Black Mirror, Miss Sloane) and Damson Idris (City of Dim Lights). The film marks the directorial debut of actor Adewale Akinoye-Agbaje, best known for his role as Mr. Eco in Lost and as the villain Killer Croc in the recent Suicide Squad.

The project is an autobiographical story based on an award-winning script by Adewala himself and follows his growing up in a white working-class British family.

Kate Beckinsale is cast as a foster mother, a tough, hardworking and sometimes self-serving woman who is very proud of her foster children, but is unable to provide them with the emotional support they crave.

Throughout the 1960s and 1980s, thousands of Nigerian children were raised in UK families. Since this was unofficial, many of them were never registered with social services, making them invisible to the authorities. Growing up among whites, these children gradually lost their cultural identity, many of them never reunited with their parents.

Filming is slated to begin in August and will take place in the UK and Nigeria.
