Bob Marley biopic FIRST LOOK:


Kingsley Ben-Adir was spotted filming for the upcoming Bob Marley biopic movie for the first time earlier this week in London.

The actor, 36, known for his role in Peaky Blinders, transformed into the late Jamaican musician with a 70s inspired costume for the first bout of filming.

Looking at the life, career and tragic 1981 death of the legendary reggae singer, the yet-to-be named film will reportedly have his family serving as producers on set.

Acting out a scene which is set in Paris, Kingsley donned a pair of flared denim jeans and a red patterned sweater vest.

He added a khaki jacket over the ensemble and a tri-coloured knitted rasta hat over dreadlocks, recreating Bob's signature look.

Jumping back in time, the cast around the main character were all kitted out in vintage ensembles to recreate the time.

Transforming London into Paris, the scenes are thought to be recreating the moment Bob and his bandmates Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer arrived at their hotel in the French capital by coach.

Kingsley could be seen through the window of a bus, before coming off to a swarm of adoring fans hoping for autographs.

The film is also thought to be heading to the music icon's home country of Jamaica to film some scenes of the biopic.
