Hollywood star Will Smith is in Namibia for a 10-day visit which will also be part of his film shooting for the second season of “One Strange Rock”.
“One Strange Rock” is a documentary on National Geographic focusing on natural history and earth science.
According to the Namibian, the Hollywood star has been granted a permit to shoot the film by the Namibian Film Commission.
Florence Haifene who works with the commission said that more details about the issuance of the permit remain classified.
“All information is classified regarding that production, therefore the commission at this stage is in no position to provide you with information,” she stated.
In the second season of One Strange Rock, there will be explorations of the hidden landmarks in Namibia and how they sustain life and the support systems that give them life.
Season One of One Strange Rock was shot in 45 countries across the world, in six continents and in the outer space. It had 10 episodes which Smith hosted.
Smith’s role in the film is guiding the audience on the journey to exploration headed by a team of eight astronauts whose insight on Earth matters is intriguing.
Some of the things the astronauts focused on the first season of the One Strange Rock’s hour-long episodes was alien life, oxygen, human intelligence and survival of living things in Planet Earth.
In 2019, together with his wife Jada Smith, he visited Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park which was part of the start of the shoot for the second season of One Strange Rock.
“On Safari In Tanzania. Bangin’ on the Serengeti! Shout out to @natgeochannel. Just started Shooting Season 2 of ONE STRANGE ROCK!! It’s gonna be CRAZY,” he posted on his Instagram page.
Serengeti National Park is one of the world’s renowned wildlife sanctuaries with thousands of game spread across the grass-ridden plains of the park.
