Pearl Thusi is set to star in upcoming international film The Blue Mauritius.
The 27-year-old actress and television personality is set to play “Makeda, a sexy, gun toting, motorcycle riding femme fatale, who works for a German art dealer who is also out to steal the precious stamps, which collectively holds the secret to a treasure in Mauritius.
The film will be produced by New York based D Street Pictures and Cape Town’s Kaapland Films (Klein Karoo, Mooirivier). Executive produced by Dexter Davis and the American actor, rapper and presenter Nick Cannon (Chi-Raq, America’s Got Talent)”.
The film is about five international thieves hired by a mysterious person from Mauritius to steal the most valuable stamps in the world.
Also joining the cast is South African supermodel turn actress Nicola Breytenbach in a leading role, along with Deon Lotz who’s supporting.
FYI: The film will be shot primarily on location in Cape Town and will feature some of the hottest spots around the Mother City.
Production begins in August, with additional cities such as London, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo thrown into the mix as they’re also part of the story where other Blue Mauritius stamps are housed, but the main and most important stamp is on exhibition in a highly secured museum in the city of Cape Town.
