Harry Potter famed Daniel Radcliffe has turned a political prisoner in forthcoming Escape from Pretoria, the first official trailer of the film is out!
Escape from Pretoria is a thriller film based on the real-life prison escape by three young political prisoners from jail in South Africa in 1979. It is based on a book by one of the escapees, Tim Jenkin, called Inside Out: Escape from Pretoria Prison, and is written and directed by Francis Annan.
The film stars Daniel Radcliffe, Daniel Webber, Ian Hart, Mark Leonard Winter and Nathan Page.

 


The film tells the true-life story of political prisoners Tim Jenkin (Radcliffe) and Stephen Lee (Webber), two white South Africans who, along with other prisoners, hatched a plot to break out of Pretoria Central Prison in 1979 after being imprisoned on charges of "producing and distributing 18 different pamphlets on behalf of banned organisations" (including the ANC) during the apartheid era in South Africa.
Some of the other political prisoners, including Denis Goldberg, helped to create and refine the details of the planned escape.
It was filmed in Adelaide, South Australia, in early 2019, both on location in the city and suburbs and in the Glenside studios of the South Australian Film Corporation.
