It's an exciting time for South African film, particularly celebrity biopics
A number of autobiographical films are in the pipeline and will be making their way into production in the coming months.
Take a look at what you can expect soon on your screens....
Brenda: The Story
After a lengthy court battle between Brenda's son Bongani and her manager Chicco Twala, a film about Ma Brr's life has finally been given the green light
UK-based production company Showbiz Bee is set to produce Brenda: The Story in the upcoming months.
Bongani said of his thoughts on the film to TshisaLive;, “It’s been a long fight, but I am relieved that this fight is finally over. It took a strain on me financially, in lawyer’s fees and the like, but I never lost hope.
"I want to thank SA for having hope in me and my mother’s legacy. I promise to make a film that will make them proud.”
The Lebo Mathosa Story
The Lebo Mathosa Story is a six-part TV series to be aired on BET Africa.
According to reports, Kelly Khumalo will take on the role of an adult Lebo, whilst Bahumi - daughter of Somizi - will play a younger Lebo
Lebo's brother Solly is ecstatic over the news. He told City Press: “It’s long overdue. Although she died at a young age, she made a huge impact on the music industry and as a result, she had won people’s hearts with her unique voice.
"Music runs in the family but Lebo’s voice was unique and different from all of us, she was just different.
The rapper revealed that his biopic would make its debut at an arts festival in Reunion later this month.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Stogie revealed that the film would touch on his his early days in SA, including growing up during apartheid.
“On September 28, I premier the show in Reunion Island at Cité des Arts. I hope to share this experience with you if you can make it - and if you can’t, say a prayer that my grandmother and grandfather may be honored by this performance.”
Dankie San - ProKid
Media mogul Tbo Touch broke the news to us back in May that production on the biopic about the late great rapper would officially begin
It may be a while before the biopic hits our screens though, as ProKid's family have requested time to deal with his affairs before they focus their attention on a film about his life.
Trevor Noah's biopic is an actual thing!
The movie is an adaptation of the comedian's 2016 bestselling autobiography Born a Crime: Stories From a Southern African Childhood.
Whilst Lupita Nyong'o will play his mother, Patrica, there's still no word on who will take the lead role of Trevor Noah
