Noel Clarke has reunited with director Enrico Tessarin for drama thriller The Habit Of Beauty.

The Kidulthood star, who previously worked with Enrico on The Knot, will star in the film alongside Italian actress Francesca Neri, reported Screen Daily.

Set in the wake of the 2011 London riots, the 37-year-old has been cast as a successful gallery owner whose wayward godson is from the same rough estate where he grew up.

Francesca, who is best known for roles in Pedro Almodovar's Live Flesh and Ridley Scott's Hannibal, will play his ex-girlfriend. The pair have to join forces to find a photographer when he flees before a big exhibition.

The Habit Of Beauty, which will be co-directed by Mirko Pinchelli, is due to start shooting in London and Florence later this year.

Noel, who will next be seen in JJ Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness, is also developing a documentary about strip clubs with the two directors.
