Pete Travis' 'Endgame' beginning
Film tells story of African National Congress talks
LONDON -- Pete Travis' "Endgame," the director's sophomore outing after "Vantage Point," has begun shooting with a cast that reads like a who's who of hot British talent alongside Oscar winner William Hurt.
Hurt is joined by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jonny Lee Miller, Mark Strong, Derek Jacobi and Timothy West in the thriller penned by BAFTA- and Emmy-winning screenwriter Paula Milne.
The film is executive produced by David Aukin and Channel 4 head of drama Liza Marshall, and produced by Hal Vogel for Daybreak Pictures.
"Endgame" details the story of the clandestine and high-risk talks that took place between key Afrikaners and African National Congress exiles, which brought about the end of apartheid and the release of Nelson Mandela. The film is shooting in the U.K. and South Africa.
The project is being presold by Penny Wolf on behalf of global media company Target Entertainment during the upcoming Marche du Film at Cannes.
