John Boyega's year is off to a tremendous start, as it's been announced today that the Nigerian-British actor will executive produce the upcoming South African crime thriller God is Good.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, which is described as a cross between Prisoners and City of God, takes place in Cape Flats and "evolves around a pastor and a detective who cross paths after an act of brutal violence sets them on a collision course with a heinous gang lieutenant who will stop at nothing to get to the top."
The film will be written and directed by Willem Grobler, the South African filmmaker behind the award-winning short film Hum. God is Good will be his debut feature-length film.
It is being produced in collaboration with the founder of production company Bandit Country Josephine Rose.
