‘Boy Kills World’

US and South Africa-based outfit Nthibah Pictures, whose genre film Boy Kills World goes out on 2,400 screens in the US this Friday (April 26), has revealed its next feature project, Project Legion, to be directed by Jozua Malherbe.

It is the first since parent company Talent10 Holdings Investment Group confirmed a multi-million dollar investment into Nthibah from the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa (IDC).

Wayne Fitzjohn, chairman of Nthibah Pictures and founder and CEO of Talent10 Holdings, said the IDC funds will go towards significantly expanding Nthibah’s content slate.

Project Legion (working title), the first feature fully financed and produced under the new investment, will reunite Fitzjohn, Nthibah Pictures CEO Simon Swart and Malherbe (BBC crime series Devil’s Peak). The trio previously partnered as producers on Donovan Marsh’s mystery crime-thriller I Am All Girls, released by Netflix in 2021.

The new film is a modern-day adventure with science fiction and fantasy elements about a dreamer-turned-prizefighter.

Malherbe and Fitzjohn are co-writing the script for Project Legion, which is intended as the first title in a possible franchise and comes as Nthibah continues to ramp up.

Moritz Mohr’s Boy Kills World, which premiered in the Midnight Madness section at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, was fully financed by Nthibah and is one of the most expensive films ever to shoot in South Africa.

It stars Bill Skarsgard as Boy, a character left orphaned, deaf, and mute when his family is brutally murdered in front of him.

Boy Kills World Universe. Fitzjohn stated that “we are working on many different IPs within that universe, including games and animated shows.” Project Ligion

is “outside of that universe”, but it will still be Nthibah’s biggest project yet. The film is likely to be made on a bigger scale and budget than Boy Kills World.Boy Kills World
