South African Action-Romance ‘Hard to Get’ Secures USA Netflix Deal
South African film sales company, AAA Entertainment, has announced a US distribution deal with Netflix for the South African action-romance “Hard to Get” from first-time feature director Zee Ntuli, and producers Junaid Ahmed and Helena Spring – the first of a slate of films from the producing pair which they say will showcase the talent of previously marginalized black filmmakers in South Africa.
The film tells the story of TK, a handsome young womanizer from a small community who falls for a sexy, reckless young thief named Skiets. Thrust into Joburg’s criminal underworld, TK realizes that his best bet is to trust her and hang on for the ride she takes him on.
The action romance “explores the universal theme of love in the very specific context of contemporary South Africa. At its heart, it’s a story of two young South Africans embarking on the universal adventure of falling in love, set against the unpredictable backdrop of Joburg’s criminal underworld,” says the press release.
