Idris Elba - Idris Elba Makes Directorial Debut With Short Film

Actor Idris Elba has made his directorial debut with a new music video as part of a project from Pepsi celebrating the world of soccer ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

The Thor star also wrote the screenplay for the six-minute film, titled Unstoppable, which chronicles international soccer during the 1970s.

The video is accompanied by a track recorded by Dutch Dj R3Hab and singer Eva Simons, and Elba insists it will be a tune that will become popular at the World Cup in Brazil.

He explains, "When I first heard the song I really loved the idea of being unstoppable... it's self belief, it's someone that just says, 'Guess what? I can do anything I want to do'."

The film is part of drinks giant Pepsi Max's Beats of the Beautiful Game album, a collection of 11 tracks by artists such as Kelly Rowland, Rita Ora and Janelle Monae and Timbaland and accompanied by films directed by Spike Lee and Diego Luna.

The album will be released on 10 June (14), two days before the World Cup kick-off.
