Helen Mirren arrives in Cape Town to shoot new film

Cape Town - Dame Helen Mirren landed in Cape Town on Monday morning.

Cape Town's KFM radio DJ Ian Bredenkamp posted a listeners pic on Instagram of the actress arriving at the airport.

She will reportedly join Aaron Paul and Colin Firth in Gavin Hood‘s international thriller Eye in the Sky. Production is expected to begin in South Africa on 12 September 2014.

The 69-year-old actress joked recently that she was offended that hackers - who stole and published nude photos of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton - didn't target her account as well.

She told The Sun: "I was rather insulted my phone wasn't hacked, actually. I kept desperately looking at the list of people whose phones were hacked, hoping to see my name."

"You weren't anybody if your phone hadn't been hacked. Who on earth would put nude photos of themselves on their phones anyway? That I don't quite get."

Speaking in an interview to be broadcast on Magic FM on Sunday at 7pm, The Hundred-Foot Journey actress added that the actions of the anonymous hackers were "cowardly and pathetic."

She said: "It's horrifying. The whole concept of privacy has gone. It's incredibly offensive and intrusive, insulting and stupid, and infantile to hack women's phones."
