AMERICAN executive producer/director Dexter Davis has chosen Port Shepstone (and Cape Town) as the towns of choice to film ‘The Blue Mauritius’ – a film about five international thieves hired by a mysterious person from Mauritius to steal the most valuable stamps in the world.

Local film maker, Senzo Zindela, founder and chairman of the Ugu Film Festival, said that they were excited to see the fruits of the film festival in Port Shepstone.

“One of our USA VIP guests, who attended last year, is now bringing his production to Port Shepstone this August. This is exciting and motivating us to work harder. Imisebenzi iyababonakala!” he said.

British director Charles Henri Belleville, (Jet Trash, The Inheritance) is to direct. Mr Belleville has just completed his second film with superstar and Oscar nominated actor Tom Hardy (Mad Max, Legend).

The film stars an array of international talent from France, Brazil, Germany, Egypt, South Africa and the United States. Also joining the cast is South African supermodel turned actress Nicola Breytenbach, in a leading role, along with Deon Lotz who’s supporting.

South African television presenter, model and actress Pearl Thusi is set to play the part of Makeda, a sexy, gun toting, motorcycle riding femme fatale, who works for a German art dealer who is also out to steal the precious stamps, which collectively hold the secret to a treasure in Mauritius.
