Set in Africa, this hilarious movie takes you on the thrilling adventure of four loveable characters in the African bush.
Insecure railway chef, Sonny Frank (Leon Schuster), and a 10-year-old rural boy, Fearless (Themba Ntuli), set out to kidnap the ambassador of a South-East Asian country in an attempt to stop rhino slaughtering. They are joined on this mission by two four-legged friends; Reini, a baby rhino whose mother was killed by poachers and Fearless’ big and faithful black dog called Dog.
When things go terribly wrong, they have no choice but to take on a platoon of merciless poachers, who are led by the terrifying ranger turned poacher, Dolf (Kenneth Nkosi), with whom Sonny has a past.
Written by Gray Hofmeyr, Leon Schuster and Geoff Newton, the motion picture was created by a dynamic team of experts, with acclaimed filmmaker Gray Hofmeyr ("Jock of the Bushveld," "Sweet and Short," "There’s a Zulu On My Stoep") as director and André Scholtz and Menzi Thabede as producers.
Schuster is absolutely brilliant in the lead role of this captivating and emotional story, which is unlike anything else previously produced by this legendary entertainer whose films, like Mr Bones and Mad Buddies, are some of the highest-grossing local productions with impressive international sales.
"Frank & Fearless" promises some incredibly funny laughs combined with a powerful message and some heartfelt personal revelations that will keep audiences captivated until the credits start rolling.
The star-studded cast, which includes Kenneth Nkosi (Tsotsi), Khanyi Mbau (Happiness is a Four Letter Word), Jennifer Steyn (Goodbye Bafana, Madam and Eve) and David Dennis (Soul City), are also praised for their outstanding performances in this heartwarming movie.
The film will be released in local cinemas on 23 November.
