US based Malawian film producer Chaz in new production
A United States of America (USA) based Malawian Screenplay Director and Producer, Chaz Munthali, is in the process of producing a new movie that will feature some Malawian actors .
The new production follows the launch of Sponge last year which was a romantic drama that also involved some Malawian actors but produced in USA.
Munthali jetted into the country recently to scout for actors and actresses for his next movie titled Zugo.
“I always like to use Malawian based actors by virtue of being a Malawian myself. There is a lot of hidden talent in Malawi but my observation is that platforms to showcase their talents are limited.
“It’s not about the money for me but sharing talent with the people that I love because we always learn from each other,” said Munthali in an exclusive interview.
He said Zugo would not just be a romantic drama movie but will contain scenes of action with a lot of violence and twists.
Furthermore, Munthali disclosed that his new movie would feature singer and songwriter Hazel Mak of the Liyaya fame as one of the actresses as well as actor Victor Kamwendo who is based in USA and also played a leading role in Sponge.
Zugo will have two settings where 30 percent of the movie will be shot in Malawi and the 70 percent in USA, Atlanta where Munthali is based.
The shooting of the video is expected to start between October and November in Atlanta then proceed to Malawi in December.
According to Chaz, production of the movie is expected to be completed early 2018.
Munthali relocated to the USA 18 years ago and is well known for his productions.
