Isaach De Bankolé will headline along with Juilet Landau and Stelio Savante the first feature film to be shot in Equatorial Guinea, Where the Road Runs Out, this June and July, with other locations set in South Africa and the Netherlands.

The film was written by David Hughes, and will be directed by Rudolf Buitendach, and produced by the Dutch production company Firenze Films.

In the film, de Bankolé plays a "Rotterdam scientist and lecturer who has grown weary of the world of academia. The sudden death of an old friend who has been running a field research station in Africa gives him the incentive he needs to turn his back on his academia and return to his African roots."

And more...

"Arriving in Equatorial Guinea he finds the field station in a state of disrepair. Through a local boy jimi his jaded eyes are opened to the possibilities of life in this rich and colorful place. Jimi also introduces him to Corina (to be played by Landau) who runs the local orphanage and a tent ative but heartfelt romance begins. With the unexpected arrival of George’s old friend Martin (played by Savante), George discovers there are many obstacles on the road to redemption…and many more where the road runs out."
