Now, she has fully stormed the Hollywood Studios as she was seen on a movie set with Nigerian-British actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor. Remember the handsome black guy with the full hair in the movie ‘Salt’ and ’2012′?
The international production for the movie titled ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’ features actors from three continents in starring roles. The movie cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Genevieve Nnaji, Anika Noni Rose, Zack Orji, Joseph Mawle and John Boyega. It was completely shot in Tinapa Studios in Calabar, Cross River State, with mostly Nigerian crew, who got the experience of working on the full scale, high budget feature film production.
The film is based on Chimamanda Adichie’s novel about Biafra’s struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria. Andrea Calderwood and Gail Egan are the producers of the feature debut of the Nigerian theatre director, playwright and novelist, Biyi Bandele, while the executive producers are Yewande Sadiku and Mukhtar Bakare.
I say congrats and keep climbing the fame ladder but remember to give back to the society in which you were discovered...nothing is too small and am not talking about cash now...
