By Omotayo Olutekunbi
After a 5-year break, Nigerian director Izu Ojukwu is set to return to the world of lights, camera, action.
The ’76’ director just announced the title of his upcoming feature film, ‘The Train from Kafanchan.’
While story specifics are being kept under wraps, the new project is said to be centered on terrorism, in the vein of his earlier works such as ‘Across the Niger.’
The 2004 sequel, starring Kanayo O Kanayo, Chiwetalu Agu, Segun Arinze, and Rekiya Atta, examined the moral issues of the civil war situation as it bordered on tribalism.
Meanwhile, Ojukwu’s award-winning war drama film ’76,’ which opened to critical acclaim in November 2016, has now debuted on Netflix.
The film, which was co-produced by Adonaijah Owiriwa, starred Ramsey Nouah and Rita Dominic and was set in post-civil war Nigeria.
While production specifics for ‘The Road from Kafanchan’ are yet unknown, auditions for the film have been scheduled for October in Lagos and Abuja.
