BMA understands that earlier this week, the Nigerian film director Femi Ogunsanwo did confirm that filming for the ‘The Naija Job’ – a Nigerian heist action movie – has commenced.
Set against the backdrop of big-city politics in Nigeria’s economic capital, the thriller promises to be an entertaining ride. The movie explores the heist, action and crime genres.
‘The Naija Job’ features Bimbo Manuel, Ade Laoye, Omowunmi Dada, Baaj Adebule, Joselyn Dumas, Antar Laniyan, Daniel K. Daniel, Teni Aladese, Frank Donga, Nonso Odogwu, and Laura Pebble, with Tunde Leye as the story editor.
Speaking about the cast, Ogunsanwo said, “The cast and crew that we have put together are some of the best the African film industry has to offer.”
Leye and Ogunsanwo reunite, as they previously collaborated on ‘Finding Hubby’ and the sequel.
Based on a story by Ogunsanwo, who is also the director, the movie was written by Dare Olaitan, who is also credited as co-story editor.
Adedayo Amzat, Tunde Leye, and Femi Ogunsanwo are named as executive producers on ‘The Naija Job’ with cinematography by Charles “Charlie” Oleghe.
The director has not yet indicated the release date for this project.
