Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin is headed to the big screen!
The actor was announced as a cast member in the upcoming film Concrete Cowboys this week, along with Idris Elba and Jharrel Jerome.
According to Deadline, Concrete Cowboys is “inspired by the real-life Fletcher Street Stables, a black urban horsemanship community which has existed in Philadelphia for more than 100 years providing a safe haven for the neighborhood.”
The movie will follow “15-year-old Cole (McLaughlin) who is taken to live with his estranged father Harp (Elba) in North Philadelphia, where he discovers the city’s vibrant urban cowboy subculture, which flourishes despite the surrounding poverty, violence, and encroachment of gentrification.”
Production on the film is already underway.
In the meantime, you can catch Caleb in the newest season of Stranger Things, which is now streaming on Netflix.
