Schuster's Mad Buddies to go on tour

2012-06-04 17:00
Johannesburg - Leon Schuster is set to take his new movie Mad Buddies on a national tour.

The tour will kick off on 15 June when the stars of the South African comedy embark on a five-city visit to celebrate the release of the new movie.

Schuster, who plays the lead role and also co-wrote the film with director Gray Hofmeyr, was upbeat about the upcoming tour as well as the movie release.

"Mad Buddies has been a work of passion for me, the cast and crew. What better way to celebrate this film that took over three years to bring to life, than by sharing it with the South African public in such a personal way!" he said.

Meet the stars

Fans will also get to meet the main cast of the movie, which includes Schuster himself, Kenneth Nkosi and long-time Schuster sidekick Alfred "Shorty" Ntombela.

The movie is about two sworn enemies, Boetie (played by Schuster) and Beast (Nkosi) who are forced to embark on a road trip as unwitting subjects of a new TV reality show organised by the Minister of Tourism, Mr Mda (Ntombela).

Tanit Phoenix also stars as Kelsey, a sexy and scheming TV producer.

The touring cast will stop off at eMalahleni, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. Each meet and greet will be followed by a screening of the movie.

Mad Buddies will open nationwide in cinemas on Friday 22 June and will be distributed by Disney Africa.
