Play Network, the studio behind Living in Bondage: Breaking Free, and the reboot of both Glamour Girls and Nneka the Pretty Serpent, has announced another sequel to a classic Nollywood movie; Osuofia Goes to Miami.
The movie has been scheduled for a 2021 release.
I love the fact that we’re getting reboots of all these classic/nostalgic movies. What I don’t like, however, is when that’s all it seems we’ll be getting. It’s like the industry (both Hollywood and Nollywood) is now all about reboots and sequels.
Does it show a lack of new content or is it just a way to feed our inner nostalgia/wishes? I guess we’ll wait to find out.
However, Play Network did a really good job with the Living in Bondage sequel and this route they’re taking is a good way to tell classic stories better, with richer scripts, better VFX/acting, and modern production that both the young and old can understand and enjoy.
Did you watch the Osuofia movies growing up? Are you excited for this sequel? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.
