History-Making Indie Flick Recruits Cast
Isaach De Bankole will headline a soon-to-shoot tale of redemption.
An eclectic international cast will headline the soon to be filmed indie flick Where The Road Runs Out, a tale of self discovery set in Equatorial Guinea, the first feature film to shoot in that location.
Ivorian born actor Isaach De Bankole (who has impressed with roles in Casino Royale, The Limits Of Control and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) will lead a strong cast of underrated actors including Juliet Landau (Ed Wood, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Stelio Savante (Ugly Betty).
Directed by Rudolf Buitendach, the film follows Dutch-based academic George (De Bankole), whose growing cynicism compels him to return home to Durban and explore his African roots. A burgeoning friendship with a local boy sets his liberation in motion, with Landau featuring as a local orphanage carer, and Savante arriving as an old friend whose presence complicates George's search for redemption.
The rich backdrop will certainly set the film apart and give it a unique edge, and Buitendach has recruited Emmy-nominated cinematographer Kees Van Oostrum, who worked on his previous film Dark Hearts, to capture the depth of the surrounds.
Filming is set to take place in Rotterdam, Equatorial Guinea and Durban through June and July.
