God is Good: John Boyega set to produce South African crime thriller

According to Deadline, Star Wars actor John Boyega is set to serve as an executive producer in the forthcoming South African crime thriller titled God is Good. Written by Willem Grobler, the film’s soundtrack will also be handled by Boyega’s own record label UpperRoom Records.

God is Good will be an English-language film set in Cape Town’s Cape Flats. It follows the story of a reformed gangster-turned-pastor and a volatile detective who cross paths after an act of brutal violence sets them on collision course with a heinous gang lieutenant. It is described as a movie in the same vein of Prisoners and City of God.

Boyega said in a statement: “I’m thrilled to be teaming once again with Josephine Rose on such a powerful and important story that explores themes of fathers and fatherhood, toxic masculinity, race and faith in a community that has become trapped in an unending cycle of violence and racial oppression, and where sometimes it seems for men that violence is the only way of achieving power. 

God is Good will be the feature directorial debut of South African writer-filmmaker Willem Grobler. It will be produced by form Sony International producer Josephine Rose through her UK production label Bandit Country. Casting is currently underway and is scheduled to begin its filming by spring of this year.

“Willem has written a superb screenplay and we are looking forward to working with him to realise the vision behind it,” Boyega added. “Josephine, Yara, Stefan and I also all share a passion for music and this film enables us to work with local talent in South Africa to find those voices and help put them on the international stage by also bringing on internationally renowned Afro beats artists. The team will work with artists across the continent of Africa to create a soundtrack that represents and gives voice to the incredible range of music talent and sound that the continent produces.”
