The picture is based on French author Caryl Férey’s award winning crime novel Zulu, set against the backdrop of post-apartheid South Africa.

Bloom and Hounsou will play two Cape Town police officers with roots on either side of the apartheid divide, working together to fight lawlessness in the city in a post-apartheid era.

Salle has adapted the novel alongside longtime collaborator Julien Rappeneau, with whom he also co-wrote The Burma Conspiracy and Largo Winch pictures.

The film is scheduled to start shooting in South Africa, mainly in Cape Town, in July.
