S.Africa goes outside for ‘Inside’

Another apartheid movie is about to whirl off the production line in South Africa.

Unlike “Cry, the Beloved Country,” however, which was written, produced, directed and, apart from three principal characters, played by South Africans, “Inside” is almost entirely American-made.

Written by Columbia U. graduate Bima Stagg and produced by American Hilly Elkins (“Alice’s Restaurant”), the movie is described as a powerful psychological drama that exposes the atrocities committed against political prisoners during the 1980s in South Africa.

Production – mostly interiors – began in Johannesburg in late September and is expected to be completed before the end of October.

It stars Nigel Hawthorne (“The Madness of King George”), and Americans Lou Gossett Jr. (“An Officer and a Gentleman”) and Eric Stoltz (“Pulp Fiction”). Arthur Penn (“Bonnie and Clyde”) is helming the pic.
