Screen Gems has released the first No Good Deed trailer for director Sam Miller’s (Luther) upcoming thriller.  The film stars Idris Elba as an escaped convict with a dangerous past who makes his way into the home of a devoted wife (Taraji P. Henson) and her young children.  The pic looks to be a pretty disturbing home invasion thriller, maybe because Elba is just so damn likable in most of his other roles.  Here, though, Elba appears to be playing a character with very sinister intentions.  Stringer Bell this is not.

taraji p henson think like a man

The comedy Think Like A Man, out in theaters on April 20th, is about a group of friends who have their love lives shaken up, after the women they are pursuing buy Steve Harvey’s best-selling book (that the film is inspired by) and start taking his advice to heart. When they realize that they have been betrayed by one of their own, they conspire to use the book’s teachings to turn the tables. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Romany Malco and Gabrielle Union.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Taraji P. Henson talked about how she came to be a part of Think Like A Man, what drew her to the character of Lauren, how it was a character that she could easily identify with and relate to, getting to work with co-star Michael Ealy, how she didn’t really do any ad-libbing in the film, and why she loves working with director Tim Story. She also talked about what she thinks of the direction that her CBS drama series Person of Interest is taking and how she can’t wait to learn more about her character’s backstory, and going straight into shooting the feature film No Good Deed (the day after POI wraps for the season on April 23rd) with Idris Elba, in which she plays an ex-district attorney who gives up her life to be a stay-at-home mom, only to have a dangerous man show up at her door. Check out what she had to say after the jump.

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share with you today. First up, The Mentalist star Simon Baker has settled on a feature project to shoot during his upcoming hiatus from the CBS series. Variety reports that Baker will star in the comedy I Give it a Year. The film stars Rafe Spall (Anonymous) and centers on “the comedic trials and tribulations of a pair of newlyweds during their first year as a married couple.” Dan Mazer, a writer-director on Da Ali G Show and a credited scribe on Borat and Bruno, is set to direct the pic. It’s a bit of a departure for Baker who’s best known for dramatic roles, and with Mazer onboard I think we can safely assume this won’t be your average romcom.
