Gbenga Akinnagbe is attached in some capacity to two feature film projects that made their debuts in Park City last month (acting in Neil Drumming’s feature film directorial debut titled Big Words – at Slamdance; and producing Shaka King’s Newlyweeds – at Sundance).
Synopsis About the Movie and it was directed by Onyekachi “Lucky” Ejim:
Caesar revolves around two detectives stalking a psychotic crime lord in Lagos. Two friends who relocate from overseas to join the Lagos State Police command in Nigeria, who are assigned to track a notorious robber named Caesar, who doesn’t make their chase easy.
Alongside Akinnagbe in front of the camera are Bimbo Manuel, Omoni Oboli, Wale Ojo, Kalu Ikeagwu, Femi Jacobs and Kehinde Bankole.
Ovbiagele, Akinnagbe and Omoni Oboli are producing the film.
No release ETA yet, or if we can even expect it to be released in the USA; although I expect Gbenga will ensure that it is.
But it should be quite a busy 12 months for the busy Akinnagbe: he also stars in writer/director/producer Jono Oliver’s drama titled Home; and has a major recurring role on USA’s new drama Graceland; he also continues to lend his acting talents to short films.
