Home Wrecker Filming Locations

‘Home Wrecker’ was filmed in its entirety in South Africa, seemingly in and around Johannesburg.

Now, without any further ado, let’s traverse through all the specific locations that make an appearance in the Netflix film!

Johannesburg, South Africa

Almost all the pivotal sequences for ‘Home Wrecker’ were possibly lensed across Johannesburg, the provincial capital and largest city of South Africa’s wealthiest province, that is, Gauteng. The production team probably traveled across the City of Gold and set up camp at a number of neighborhoods and streets to shoot different scenes, both interiors as well as exteriors, against suitable backdrops.

To shoot most of the interior scenes, including the residence and office sequences, the filming unit utilized some real-life establishments and residential properties. As far as the exterior scenes are concerned, they took various aerial shots of the cityscape and took the production to different sites in and around Johannesburg. Also, we cannot rule out the possibility of them setting up camp at one of the film studios in the city for taping a few important portions, including Atlas Studios, Gold Island Studios, Sasani Studios, Phoenix Studios, and Moon Valley Studios.

In the backdrop of several exterior scenes, the viewers are likely to spot some popular buildings and landmarks. Some of them are the Johannesburg Art Gallery, the Hillbrow Tower, Ponte City, Nelson Mandela Bridge, First National Bank Stadium, and the Sentech Tower. Apart from ‘Home Wrecker,’ Johannesburg has hosted the production of a number of film and TV projects over the years, such as ‘Sleeper’s Wake,’ ‘Fleshtone,’ ‘The Fury,’ ‘Sweet Murder,’ ‘The Company You Keep,’ ‘Layla Fourie,’ and ‘One Last Look.’
