Oh Schuks, not again! SA’s favourite prankster, Leon Schuster, together with Producer Andre Scholtz and Director Gray Hofmeyr have announced that principal photography on their latest top-secret cinematic outing, Oh Schuks! Your Country Needs You! has wrapped. A candid camera comedy, Schuks! Your Country Needs You co-stars long-time Schuster collaborator Alfred Shorty Ntombela, stage and screen comic icon Rob van Vuuren as well as newcomer Laré Birk and is due to hit cinemas nationwide at the end of this year.
Returning to his hidden camera formula for the first time since the box-office smash-hit Schuks Tshabalala, Schuster is sure that Schuks! Your Country Needs You will resonate with the South African audiences. I am especially excited to deliver some much-needed laughter to South African audiences, he says. Were about as culturally diverse as a country can be, but we all share a common sense of humour – and if making people laugh means I need to get klapped a few times, its worth it! he says.
Due for release on Friday 29 November 2013, Oh Schuks! Your Country Needs You! will be distributed by The Walt Disney Company Africa under the Touchstone Pictures banner.
