The pilot was written by John Ridley, but was not picked up by HBO.

Also in 2011, he played in the film "Junkhearts" in which he portrayed a drug dealer who found some guns and tried to sell them. In March 2012, Boyega was cast in the film version of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's book "Half of a Yellow Sun."
