The likes of Nigerian popular Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Sola Sobowale, and two other Hollywood stars have joined forces in the production of the much-anticipated movie -Shadow Parties
According to the producer, Omotola will be playing the lead actress alongside actor Yemi Blaq and vibrant actress Sola Sobowale.
The Hollywood stars actors involved are Magdalena Korpas, Poland-born/Paris-based stage actress and producer Lucien Morgan who is known for producing Return of the Don (2016), Theft Unexpected (2013) and An American Wolf in London (1981).
Shadow Parties – is all about a communal clash in which Aremu (Ken Eric’s) from Aje, a village that neighbors iludun, where his wife, Arike (Toyin Aimakhu-Abraham) was born, well known for fratricidal wars, which had claimed the lives of Arike’s parents.
Both towns had to engage in another war after the kinsmen of Aremu decided to burn his wife and child claiming she was an enemy to them, which then triggered a reprisal attack from the iluduns led by Lowo (Yemi Blaq) Arike’s brother.
The blockbuster movie ‘Shadow Parties’ is produced and directed by seasoned filmmaker, Yemi Amudu.
The movie has already gone through the post-production process and is sponsored by the Media Concept Studio.
Speaking on the yet to be released movie, Amudu stated that movie lovers should watch out for a very good movie with a twisting plot and an enriched production. “The story can be liking to the issue of herdsmen”.
“We have so many issues concerning insecurity in the society that needs to be addressed. As a filmmaker, the first thing that comes to mind is who is a sociologist? A sociologist is a person that believes in the improvement of its environment and its dwellers. If you are the one that thinks about the people in your environment, then seeing them die is not something you’d want to see”
“So as a filmmaker, it’s my duty to help the society. Shadow Parties has so much to do with society. It’s not just producing a film for fun; though we have different scenes in the movie. Drama elements that are entertaining, but the story is instructive enough to teach morals and expose the evil act involved in communal clashes”, he further said.
Other Nigerian stars in the movie said to have gulped over N100 million are Prince Jide Kosoko, Segun Arinze, Said Balogun, Hafiz Oyetoro, Rotimi Salami, Sola Kosoko, and others.
The movie which was shot across major South-west cities of Lagos, Ekiti, Ondo, Ibadan, and Erin Ijesha, would soon hit the cinemas after a round of exhibitions at major international film festivals around the world.
