The Weinstein Company’s has released this new featurette on The Giver, directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift.

The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The August 15 release is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner of the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

The Giver was shot with Moonlighting Films.

‘Homeland’ Set for Summer Shoot in South Africa

30 April 2014

Showtime and Fox 21 announced Friday that award-winning drama series “Homeland” is set to begin production in Cape Town, South Africa.

Production will begin in mid-June and continue through November on the popular drama centered around bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes.

“We’ve been so lucky to work with one of the best crews in the business for the last three seasons in Charlotte,” “Homeland” showrunner and exec producer Alex Gansa said in a statement. “We knew going into season four that we would need to move the production overseas to tell the story of Carrie returning to the Middle East as chief of station.  We are thrilled to have found a new home in Cape Town and look forward to getting season four production off the ground.”

The show’s fourth season, set to premiere this fall, finds Carrie back on the front lines in the war on terror as she is assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East.

In addition to stars Danes and Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend will also return for season four, along with Nazanin Boniadi, who was recently promoted to a series regular.

New York Times votes Cape Town Number One City to visit 2014

22 January 2014

$ – ZAR10.8 ||  € – ZAR – 14.8 || £ – 17.7

These are today’s crazy exchange rates ensuring 20 to 24% more value to production budgets this season. Combine that with the heady news that the New York Times and the UK Guardian just voted Cape Town THE number one place to visit (out of 52) and there can’t be many reasons to keep you away.  Cape Town is a hotspot of international productions this month but amazingly, thanks to Manni, Moonlighting accommodation guru, we have managed to get rooms for our client teams under really demanding circumstances.  NOTE: If you want to book at restaurants The Test Kitchen or Pot Luck Club, I suggest you get us to book in the minute you think you might be coming.  http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/01/10/travel/2014-places-to-go.html?_r=0
