More “Spud’-like madness


The eagerly awaited sequel to the hit South African film, Spud – The Movie, releases nationwide on 21 June. Directed by Donovan Marsh, Spud – the Madness Continues stars John Cleese, Troye Sivan, Jason Cope, Jeremy Crutchley, Tanit Phoenix and Aaron McIlroy.

Spud – The Madness Continues is based on the best-selling novel by John van de Ruit, and is produced by Ross Garland and co-produced by Brad Logan.

The year is 1991, and Spud Milton’s (Troye Sivan) long walk to manhood is still creeping along at an unnervingly slow pace. Approaching the ripe old age of 15 and still with no signs of the much anticipated ball-drop, Spud is coming to terms with the fact that he may well be a freak of nature. With a mother (Julie Summers) hell-bent on emigrating, a father (Aaron McIlroy) making a killing out of selling homemade moonshine, and a demented grandmother called Wombat (Christine Le Broq), the new year seems to offer little except extreme embarrassment and more mortifying Milton madness.

Spud is soon beset with women trouble, coerced into misguided late night adventures, and finds his dreams of a famous career on the stage in tatters after landing the part of the Dove of Peace in a disastrous house play production of Noah’s Ark. Aided by his English teacher “the Guv’ (played again by the legendary John Cleese), Spud takes up the fight against his housemaster Sparerib (Jason Cope), who is determined to get the Crazy 8 (Sven Ruygrok, Byron Langley, Blessing Xaba, Thomas Burne, Josh Goddard and Travis Hornsby) expelled from school.
