Freeman to portray Mandela
Oscar wining actor Morgan Freeman is set to star in a film about the former South African president Nelson Mandela.
Ananova.com reports the film will be titled The Human Factor and is set against the backdrop of the end of apartheid when South Africa hosted the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
Freeman said, “I have known Mandela personally for quite some time and am continually in awe of his enormous presence in the world. The opportunity to portray him in this film is a great honour.”
