South African actors Menzi Ngubane and Baby Cele have just been given an amazing opportunity to star in an international film. Yesss, this is how we do it in Mzansi!
Making the international screen is a huge achievement for a Mzansi actor. Our entertainment stars are proving that SA has mad untapped talent.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Menzi and Baby Cele have been invited to star in an upcoming American film called Red Cargo. Our two locals will be starring alongside other American actors.
Senzo Zindela, the director of the film, spoke to Isolezwe, revealing that this film is a dream come true. It has taken Senzo years to make this happen.
Sharing his idea with an American director, Senzo’s film got the break it needed and deserved. Senzo couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity and to be able to have SA actors star in the film too.
"We are waiting for lockdown regulations to ease up so we can start filming the movie. We are hopeful that by October the regulations will allow for such work to happen.”
Menzi and Baby Cele are not the only two SA actors who have been cast. Shibe, Israel Matseke-Zulu, Luthuli Dlamini and many more have too as the film will be shot on home soil.
Menzi is taking the lead role in the film and Baby Cele will be playing his character’s mother. None of the American actors' names have been revealed yet.
Another home run for Mzansi and we couldn’t be more proud!
Briefly.co.za previously reported that a Mzansi movie titled Losing Lerato has been nominated for six awards at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema. The festival took place in California.
Kagiso Modupe is nominated for Best Actor, Samela Tyelbooi for Best Actress, Tshimollo Modupe for Best Supporting Actress, Thato Molamu for Best Supporting Actor, Sanele Zulu for Best Director and Gavin Sterley for Best Cinematography.
The movie was produced by Kagiso Modupe. What's really awesome is that Tshimollo Modupe is his real-life daughter. This daddy-daughter duo is really a magical combination and achieving great things.
