Cape Town - Hollywood stars Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds were shot on location on the streets of Cape Town this week as they continue to shoot scenes for their new action thriller, Safe House.

Much of the city centre was blocked off to traffic for the shoot. One photograph shows Washington, who reportedly plays a villain in the movie, walking along Strand Street. In one scene he is wearing a hat and a pair of spectacles, a costume reminiscent of his role as civil rights leader Malcolm X in the Spike Lee movie from 1992.

In the movie, Reynolds plays Matt Weston, a CIA agent who must protect prisoner/rogue ex-agent Tobin Frost (Washington) from assassins when their safe house is hit.

Reynolds was photographed shooting scenes on a balcony with French actress Nora Arnezeder. He was also spotted at a U2 concert in the city on Friday.

Production on Safe House is expected to continue in Cape Town into March. The movie has been slated for a February 2012 release. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
