GEORGE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - The Du Toit brothers from Twin Oak Films in George are currently underway with a new short film project aimed specifically at international film festivals such as the Sundance and Cannes Film Festival in 2020.
With the financial assistance from an investor in the United States, they came with the idea of doing an Egyptian-themed mummy movie about Tarzan going on a rescue mission to save Jane who has been abducted by rebels during a missionary expedition in a remote area in Egypt and is held hostage inside a newly discovered pyramid which happens to be secretly guarded by mummies.
Then the rescue attempt goes wrong and Tarzan is captured and gets mummified.
"The film, Tarzan: Curse of the Mummy will be challenging due to the Egyptian theme, but we already scouted certain locations such as the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn which will represent the interior and underground tunnels of the pyramids. The rest of the locations will be based in Cape Town surroundings such as the dunes in Atlantis where big Hollywood movies have been filmed such as the latest Scorpion King: Book of souls starring Pearl Thusi and Zach McGowan.
"Camels will also be used via animal wranglers who we became acquainted with on earlier films sets," says De Wet, the twin who plays the role of Tarzan.
The Du Toits have also established a new film company, Tarzana Interactive, which will be used for international co-productions as well as for their next few Tarzan film projects lined up such as Tarzan Apocalypse, a documentary Walking with Tarzan, and currently Tarzan Curse of the Mummy.
"We are still working closely with the Tarzan foundation, Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., in California, USA."
He says they have over 50 thousand subscribers and almost 20 million views on their YouTube channel. "There's still more to come."
Anyone who would like to be involved in their short film production and believe they can be of any assistance may contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
