In between all the major Holly,Bolly and Nollywood productions that we cover, we sometimes forget about the local side of the film industry that has finally begun taking off in recent years.
One such film is the latest Leon Schuster theatrical event, Mad Buddies. Schuster joins Kenneth Nkosi as two unwitting participants in a reality road trip film who happen to also despise one another.
Unbeknownst to the two of them, they’re being primed for some roadside shenanigans, but when the duo uncovers the scheme, they put aside their mutual hatred of each other in order to gain some revenge.
Mad Buddies also stars Tanit Phoenix as the TV Producer by the name of Kelsyand frequent Schuster film actor Alfred Ntombela while Ed Jordan will compose the score for the film.
Jordan, who is more well-known for his TV work on shows such as Deal or no Deal and Popstars, also worked on the musical side of the 2010 schoolboy film Spud.
Directed by Gray Hofmeyr and produced by Helena Spring, Mad Buddies opens on June 22.
