British actor Idris Elba was hospitalised in the UK Saturday after he had an asthma attack while on his way to the premiere of his new movie “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” in Johannesburg.
The star of the new film about the life of former South African president Nelson Mandela is recovering after suffering the attack on his way to the film’s premiere. The incident happened on a plane but he was taken off before the flight left the United Kingdom.
He was unable to attend a news conference surrounding the film in South Africa because of illness.
Elba stars in the movie alongside fellow British star Naomie Harris who will play Mandela’s former wife Winnie in the movie.
Harris has had roles in such movies as the James Bond flick “Skyfall” where she played Miss Moneypenny.
The film tells the story of Mandela’s imprisonment on Robben Island and his later release and election to the South African presidency. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
Elba moved to South Africa for three months during the filming to help him better understand the society. The film is set to be released in January next year.

The Warehouse Project, that series of nightclubs in Greater Manchester that has been around for the last eight years has decided to cut back on some of its projects for the upcoming year 2014.
According to the organisers of the project, which has staged winter events regularly since 2005, 2014 will feature only a “handful of special events” but the line-up will go back to its full quota of events for the following year 2015.
The Warehouse Project will celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2015.
The project, which runs from September through New Year’s Eve annually, has had difficulty in 2013. In September, a partygoer died after taking some bad drugs at one of the parties which prompted organizers to undertake new drug-testing plans that were also revealed in October.
This year’s New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day events includes performances by Andy C, Tiga, Sasha, James Zabiela, Tensnake, Jamie Jones, Carl Craig, and Maceo Plex.
The New Year’s Day event will also feature several back-to-back sets with Dixon against Âme and Ben UFO against Joy Orbison in the line-up.
