Mandela Coming at You

A true life telling of the story of Nelson Mendela's time in captivity will start filming in 6 weeks, according to Tonight. The twist is that it is told from the point of view of one of his captors. The movie has attracted Diane Kruger ("Troy"), Joseph Fiennes ("Shakespeare in Love"), and Dennis Haybert ("24").

The movie, "Goodbye Bafana" is based on the memoir of James Gregory. Gregory was Mendela's keeper during his captivity. They're not clear on the relationship, I've gotten the gist that he was either a guard or warden. In any case, he had a personal relationship with Mendela and it changed him. -- Terrence Ryan
