The Establishing Shot: Exclusive Safe House Car Chase Clip


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, February 17, 2012

Safe Househaven't seen Universal's Safe House yet. But how can I not be enthusiastic about a film shot in my home town of Cape Town that stars powerhouse Denzel Washington going up against Ryan Reynolds? South Africa is increasingly becoming the go to destination for film-makers with it's incredibly diverse landscapes ranging from lush rain forests all the way through to scorching deserts, not to mention the stunning clear blue waters, beach locales and local wildlife. All backed up by world class production teams and post production facilities.

Recent features that have either been shot on location in South Africa or had post production work done on them includes; Chronicle, InvictusSafe House, Blood Diamond, HitmanThe Last House on the Left, Doomsday, RenditionDonkey Punch, The Prisoner mini series, Blue Crush 2, The Fall, Dark Tide as well as the much anticipated adaptation of Dredd and pre-production on Mad Max: Fury Road rumoured to star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron has already started up.


Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he's remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.

Safe House
Oscar® winner DENZEL WASHINGTON (American Gangster, The Book of Eli) and RYAN REYNOLDS (Green Lantern, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the CIA’s most dangerous traitor, who stuns the intelligence community when he surfaces in South Africa. When the safe house to which he’s remanded is attacked by brutal mercenaries, a rookie (Reynolds) is forced to help him escape. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant protégé, the young operative finds his morality tested and idealism shaken. Now, they must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.

Legendary spy Tobin Frost (Washington) has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA’s ever trained, the brilliant ex-intelligence officer has betrayed assets and sold military codes to enemies of the state since he turned. From aiding splinter cells to trading incendiary secrets to the highest bidder, the damage he’s done to the U.S. is immeasurable. Now, Frost is back on the grid with the most explosive intel he’s ever gotten his hands on.

For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A “housekeeper” who aspires to be a full-fledged case officer, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he’s had proves to be the most dangerous operative he will ever cross, Weston readies for duty.

Tobin Frost (DENZEL WASHINGTON) stays a step ahead in Safe House. As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries in brutal pursuit of Frost come and level Weston’s safe house. Barely escaping, the veteran spy and untested captor must discover whether their attackers were sent by terrorists or by someone on the inside. With only hours left to get Frost to the next safe house, Weston must figure out who he can trust before he and the world’s most skillful assassin are both eliminated.

Joining Washington and Reynolds is a spectacular cast of accomplished performers including VERA
FARMIGA (Up in the Air, The Departed) as CIA Branch Chief Catherine Linklater; BRENDAN LEESON
(Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, The Guard) as Case Officer David Barlow; SAM SHEPARD
