Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie to be fashioned after GOT
Here is all you need to know about Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie.
Recently, Kunle Afolayan has teased a new project.Through his Instagram page, he announced that the project would be fashioned after the popular “Game of Thrones” Television Show.
This has caused a lot of stir and excitement among fans, at the thought of having a Nigerian movie fashioned after “Game of Thrones”
Although there are comments that indicate that since it is a movie and not a series, capturing the whole idea might be hard for Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie.
However, since Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie will only sample the idea, the defense is that it doesn’t matter how long the film is, but how it is able to capture the interest of the audience and make them talk about the movie for as long as possible.
Also, Fresh of the success of his last project “A Naija Christmas” which premiered on Netflix last Christmas, Kunle Afolayan has wasted no time in getting back to business.
This time it’s an historical drama which is part of the three movie slate deal with Netflix that has already produced “Swallow“.
Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie which is rumored to be set in 17th/18th century Oyo Empire features a host of brilliant actors.
The cast of Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie are: Sola Sobowale, Hakeem K. Kazeem, Bimbo Ademoye, Kunle Remi, Fathia Balogun, Adebayo Salami, Moji Olayiwola, Kareem Adepoju aka Babawande and others.
The film has also started production and is being shot at the new KAP Film Village Studio and Resort Igbojaye, Komu, in Itesiwaju local government, Oyo state.
It’s good to see a high profile project as this being shot outside of Lagos and Abuja.
Interestingly, the set is reportedly being built from scratch, something we rarely see in Nollywood.
The plot and title of Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie is largely unknown but Kunle Afolayan has hinted that it is similar to the popular HBO TV show ‘Game of Thrones’. In his words:
“This may seem like mere hype but imagine a movie like game of thrones recreated in Nigeria but with a better representation of our culture”.
From all we know and the pictures released on social media, we can say this is going to be a hallmark for Kunle Afolayan himself. Speaking on the movie, he said:
“Netflix et Kunle Afolayan; Harnessing the African Art!
Something huge is about to drop!!!
It has only been a few days since everyone screamed “Happy new year” in excitement, but at KAP Hub, we were more excited about this year because of all the plans we had, and guess what guys? Right now, those plans are already panning out… 😊
Director Kunle Afolayan wrapped up 2021 with a Netflix movie “A Naija Christmas” that knocked the Christmas socks off our feet. 2022 is here now, and he is working on another movie which is the second of the Netflix three films slate and best believe you need to stay guarded because this one will stir up a hurricane that will blow off the roof.
This may seem like mere hype but imagine a movie like the game of thrones recreated in Nigeria but with a better representation of our culture.
If you are a true fan of productions born out of Golden Effects Pictures and KAP Motion Pictures, then your imaginations should be running wild😉. The movie is being shot on our latest project site KAP Film Village Studio and Resort Igbojaye, Komu in Itesiwaju Local Government, Oyo State”
The release date for Kunle Afolayan’s latest movie is unannounced as production for the Kunle Afolayan latest movie is ongoing.
