Let the countdown begin to 1st November 2013 begin. That’s when South African Tv will experience the premiere of The Message. An incredibly ambitious independent game changer from David Golden and Reel edge studios.
Gear-up for a first in South African Tv. When a threat of a nuclear destruction of Soweto is discovered by the National Intelligence Agency, a super-elite team of Special Forces Operators is thrust into a race against time to neutralise the bomb at any cost.This sort of action packed totally independent 100% percent South African production has never been tried before.
I cant wait to see the largest ever Gun-Battle, through the streets of Hillbrow, a quality story and quality actors. Speaking of quality actors…
Don’t you think Pallance becoming the Brad Pitt of SA? Rough, athletic dude who melts the ladies. You disagree? Well, you’ll see. This boy has skills.
Danny Ross like Pallance did well in class act, but he didn’t get his big break, now it’s his ultimate chance to prove his worth. I believe in him.
Why should watch The Message : Mini Series –

* This movie has action scenes competing with those of District 9, Safe House, Dredd, Mad Max etc… but these where all done on budgets ranging from $30mil to $110mil…
* It is indeed historic: when was the last time South Africa had “TV Event”. TV Event’s or Mini-Series are huge in Hollywood at the moment – Studios and networks all have impressive line ups in this regard, so much so that at the EMMY’s they have split categories and give TV Mini-Series its own category.
* They have ARNO CARSTENS in his first TV/Film role playing a BAD-ASS role.
* Like I mentioned before an impressive cast comprised of Old favorites, with some of the OG’s being:
