International film distribution and production company D Street Media will begin production on the big budget The Blue Mauritius early next year, and it’s set to bring some top Hollywood actors to Cape Town.
New to the cast is Anthony Mackie, of Avengers fame.
“Anthony Mackie, who I consider a real movie star, brings such a fresh perspective to the cast and the character, he’s an incredibly talented, versatile actor who truly takes the project to the next level,” D Street chief executive Dexter Davis said.
“I’m also so pleased to be working with Michael Benaroya and his prestigious company Benaroya Pictures on The Blue Mauritius, a project that’s been a labour of love. Michael is super smart and well connected in Hollywood and after four years of false starts I can finally feel secure we’re going to get this done,” Davis said.
