Legacy is a 2010 psychological thriller film directed by Nigerian/British director Thomas Ikimi, premièring at the Glasgow Film Festival on the 28th February, 2010. The film stars Idris Elba from The Wire (who was also executive producer), Eamonn Walker and Richard Brake amongst others. The story follows Malcolm Gray (Idris Elba) taking sanctuary in a Brooklyn motel room whilst he broods over his past and the rise of his brother Darnell, a ruthless senator, bent on getting into the White House.



Director Thomas Ikimi stated at the premier that, unable to find funding for the film in the UK, he went to Nigeria and was given funding based purely on the fact he was a Nigerian director than on the script itself. He also apologized to the crew for his bad mood throughout filming due to the tightness of the budget and timetable. The film was completed on the morning of the premier (28th February, 2010), and filmed entirely in Scotland despite being set in Brooklyn.
