Nuwe fliek – Vrou Soek Boer
Wat het Wakkerstroom, ŉ voorskoot, twee aantreklike boere en ŉ stadsmeisie in gemeen? Hulle vorm almal deel van ŉ romantiese komedie. Wees een van die eerste mense om dié fliek te sien…
Daar wag nog groot dinge vir die Afrikaanse filmbedryf in 2014 met ŉ hele string hoë gehalte flieks wat hul debuut gaan maak op die grootskerm en een van hulle is die romantiese komedie Vrou Soek Boer.
Die fliek vertel die storie van ŉ prettige liefdesdriehoek en speel in Mpumalanga af en is ook in en om Wakkerstroom verfilm. Die hoofrolle word deur Lika Berning, Nico Panagio en Bok van Blerk vertolk.
Mareike (Lika Berning) is ŉ stadsmeisie en suksesvolle beleggingsbankier. Haar liefdeslewe laat egter veel te wense oor. Sy verruil dan die stad vir die platteland om ŉ bakkery oor te neem wat sy geërf het. Haar nuwe lewe hou meer in as wat sy self kon indink. En buiten dat sy haar snyerspakkie vir ŉ voorskoot moet verruil, begin die poppe dans wanneer sy tussen Meneer Aantreklik en Meneer Reg moet kies.
Die frustrasie oor haar onvermoë voor die bakoond in die bakkery word vererger wanneer sy gereeld in Neil (Nico Panagio), ŉ boer van die omgewing, bly vasloop…
Vrou Soek Boer word op 7 Maart 2014 landswyd uitgereik en is beslis nie iets om mis te loop nie!

On set with 'Spud' star Troye & YouTube celeb Caspar
THE CRAZY Eight are back in town.
Parts of the latest Spud film – Learning to Fly – are being filmed at Rustenburg Girls, Rondebosch Boys and Bishops and some surrounding houses.
The movie adaptations of Spud, created by actor, author and playwright John van de Ruit, have proven as popular as the books on which they are based.
The Spud series was released in 2005 and introduced John “Spud” Milton and the shenanigans of the Crazy Eight – a group of boys at a prestigious private boarding school in KwaZulu-Natal . It follows Spud’s life, fashioned in the style of a diary.
The sequel Spud: The Madness Continues was released in 2007.
In June 2009 the third book Spud: Learning to Fly was launched and sold 77 000 copies in South Africa in its first two weeks after release.
The movie is expected to be released some time early next year. British comedy legend John Cleese reprises his role as English teacher “The Guv”.
The crew were on set at Bishops yesterday.
Lead actor playing the role of “Spud”, Troye Sivan, was born in South Africa but has been living in Australia.
Sivan said there have been some “huge changes” to the series, among them, a new director in John Barker, which Sivan described as “new, fresh and very exciting”.
“It’s definitely my favourite one so far,” he said of the third movie.
He said that on their off days some of the cast had been relaxing and since most of them were now 18, they sometimes enjoyed a night out at the clubs.
“But I haven’t been up Table Mountain or seen some of the sights, but I’ll definitely be spending more time in Cape Town – it’s my favourite city in the world.”
Barker admits to being a bit nervous about running the show, but said the crew had been “great”.
He said the third instalment would not include a deviation from the Spud formula as the first two had already laid a solid foundation.
“It’s just for me to take it to the next level,” he said.
When asked whether the fourth and final movie – based on Spud: Exit, Pursued by a Bear – was on the cards, producer Ross Garland, said: “Definitely. Although we’re not supposed to say so until we start filming it…”
Caspar Lee is officially confirmed as the new member of the Crazy 8 for Spud 3 by producer Ross Garland and author of the Spud series John van de Ruit.
John Cleese returns for SPUD 3.
