The Umbrella Men: Escape From Robben Island Interview with Cast

The Toronto International Film Festival 2023 holds an industry conference during the festival that highlights a group of 12 selected films.  Director John Barker’s sequel to his hilarious THE UMBRELLA MEN is one of TIFF’s 12 industry selected films that will screen for buyers this weekend.  THE UMBRELLA MEN: ESCAPE FROM ROBBEN ISLAND has its world premiere this Saturday September 9th.  Cast members Jaques De Silva, Shamilla Miller, Keenan Arrison and Bronte Snell joined our Gadi Elkon for a chat about the sequel, the Cape, TIFF and so much more!

After the successful Umbrella Men heist, our usual suspects find life is sweet, until they get arrested. Jerome and Morty are banged up in Prison and the girls need to bust them out but an outta-control Tariek has other plans.

Last year, our Gadi Elkon got to chat with Shamilla Miller, Jaques De Silva and Director John Barker about THE UMBRELLA MEN.  Gadi was able to catch back up with Jaques and Shamilla and chat with returning cast members Bronte Snell and Keenan Arrison.  Gadi and the cast talked about last year’s festival, the quick turnaround into making the sequel and so much more!

Here is our chat with the cast from THE UMBRELLA MEN: ESCAPE FROM ROBBEN ISLAND:

The film has its world premiere on Saturday September 9th at TIFF 2023.
