Azania Productions (Blessers, Broken Promises 4 Ever) has commenced principal photography on their latest comedy feature, The Gang, in Johannesburg.  

The Gang, follows a group of hapless friends who embark on a rescue mission to save another of their friends.  Their rescue skills leave much to be desired and the suave six leave utter chaos in their wake.  However, despite its many challenges, the mission cements their friendship and has surprising consequences for all.  

“We love the comedy genre and have been looking to make a fun buddy movie for some time,” says producer Malebo Manamela.  “When we came upon a concept that we believed would work, we commissioned Sasa Nqabeni to write the script.  We’re thrilled with the end result – strong characters, a fast-paced storyline and enough action to appeal to a male audience.”  

The Gang is directed by Kganki ‘Star’ Mphahlele and stars Kagiso Modupe (Losing Lerato), Carpo, Anton Jeftha (Legacy, Dominion), Armand Aucamp (Komplex, Ballade vir ‘n Enkeling), Joey Rasdien (Material, Blitzpatrollie) and Xolani Mayekiso (The Queen).  

Shooting will take place in and around Johannesburg.  

The Gang is slated for release in 2022
