Noel Clarke will direct and star in Adulthood, the followup to his controversial British teen gang film Kidulthood, according to Variety. The movie will be his feature directorial debut.

Clarke wrote and starred in Kidulthood, which attracted lots of media attention due to its gritty portrayal of the violent, sex-filled lives of contemporary West London teens.

Joining Clarke from the original film are actors Adam Deacon, Femi Oyeniran, Red Madrell, Cornell John and Madelaine Fairley, along with newcomers Scarlett Alice Johnson, Jacob Anderson, Shanika Warren Markland, Nathan Constance, Don Klass and Arnold Oceng as well as rappers Ben 'Plan B' Drew and Shystie.
