With his new role, Attah joins Hollywood stars like Robert Downey Jr, Laura Harrier, Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya and Tony Revolori.


In Beast of No Nation, Attah worked with the likes of Idris Elba and director Cary Joji Fukunaga, as a child soldier.

Abraham won Best Lead Actor Award in the Independent Spirits as well as the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor at Venice.

Reports indicate that Attah is separately attached to play one of the leads in Christian Loubek’s upcoming feature film, Buffalo, which Anonymous Content is producing.

His handlers had sparked controversy back in Ghana after they intimated that the youngster was not going to star in any local movies as was widely expected after his breakthrough in ‘Beast of No Nations.’
