Hollywood actor PIERCE BROSNAN is the latest celebrity feeling the effects of the global economic crisis - his upcoming big-screen outing has reportedly been delayed due to a lack of funds.
The former James Bond star signed up to play Lord Charles Somerset in Heaven and Earth, a $20 million (£14 million) biopic of James Miranda Barry - a woman doctor who masqueraded as a man to follow a medical career.
Filming was due to start on the big budget movie last Thursday (12Feb09) with a release date planned for later this year (09).
But the economic crisis has put paid to those plans - with U.K. newspaper The Independent reporting an unidentified British backer has failed to provide promised funds in time, forcing filming to be delayed

South Africa, Republic of (Press Release) February 12, 2009 -- It is therefore no surprise that 2009 promises to be a watershed year for the Cape Film Industry. We cannot help but be excited as major deals are being put together to bring 7 major film productions including a number of Bollywood productions to Cape Town within the first quarter of 2009, and another animated feature film is also being scheduled to go into production in early 2009.

‘The Human Factor’ a movie about South Africa winning the Rugby World Cup in 1995 will commence production soon, and will be directed by Oscar winner Clint Eastwood, with international film stars Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. It is based on the book ‘The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that changed the world’.
‘Heaven and Earth’ will feature Pierce Brosnan, playing Lord Charles Somerset, the Cape’s first governor. The Castle will be used as one of the locations for the shoot.
South Africa’s first full length CGI film, Lion of Judah, was also produced in Cape Town and is set for international release later in year. Already negotiations are underway for another CGI animated film and announcements will follow shortly.

In a recent frank interview with the Commissioner of the CFC, Laurence Mitchell, he clearly sounded optimistic in stating that “Cape Town and the Western Cape is set to become a global film industry destination and that 2009 will be a crucial year during which we will have to up our game as the rest of the world would have taken notice”.

“We have often been told that we are too ambitious and lack the necessary skills and infrastructure. However it has now become apparent that indeed we have the capacity to become this global film destination/ industry.
