Danny Glover will reprise his stage role in a bigscreen adaptation of Athol Fugard's apartheid-era play "Master Harold... and the Boys."

The film will be helmed by Lonny Price, who directed Glover in the recent Broadway revival and played opposite him in the stage production 20 years ago.

Variety says the title role will be played by Thomas Sangster, the Love Actually star who'll play the title role in the Steven Spielberg-directed Tintin.

The U.K./South Africa co-production will begin production on July 10 in Durban, South Africa.
