Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson have long since wanted to work with each other … and they finally got their chance in the Will Packer produced thriller No Good Deed.
But instead of playing lovers, the two are literally at each others throats in the film about a mother of two (Henson) who has to fight for her life after letting a stranger (Elba) into her home.
HipHollywood caught up with the two about their very physical scenes, and got Idris to admit that Taraji just might be able to take him in a real street fight.
“In truth, when we were filming these big sequences, Taraji ain’t no chump,” laughed Idris. “I love that , we used that, because Taraji and I are quite competitive in real life.”
No Good Deed is in theaters September 12th.
