Noel Clarke has revealed he has many more goals to achieve.

The 36-year-old actor, writer and director has enjoyed a successful career on both the small and big screens and on stage, having written seven films and won a Rising Star Bafta.

But he said: "It's weird how people perceive me and success, I haven't even done half of what I wanted to do.

"There's loads more. If you could just see the plan, but it's like Fight Club - you can't talk about 'the plan'. The plan consistently and continually evolves."

As his plans for MMA (mixed martial arts) and British superhero films remain on hold, Noel's next big-screen outing is in sci-fi thriller Storage 24, which he also wrote and produced through his Unstoppable production arm.

"I'm a big sci-fi fan so it's not so much that I've headed back to sci-fi territory: it was more that I diversified and did lots of different things," he said.

"This is the sort of stuff I prefer doing really. I like sci-fi, always have, and I would gladly make sci-fi films for the rest of my life."

Noel admitted that the film's basis unwittingly came from his wife.

"Weirdly, this particular film actually came from me taking her to storage facilities for her work. We would go there on a Sunday morning, and while I waited, I kept thinking, 'This place looks really creepy'," he added.
