After giving the world blockbusters like Shaking Kingdom and Reality, talented actor, Bobby Ogoloma, is currently working on another box office hit, My City. The new flick is being shot in Port Harcourt and will have its concluding scenes shot in London, Italy and France.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos, Ogoloma says My City borders on true-life story of a group of youngsters who left their country illegally to seek greener pastures abroad. However, he admitted that the film would make the expected impact by encouraging the Nigerian youths who already have the urge to travel abroad that they can as well make it here in Nigeria.
According to the producer, a whole lot of money has been sunk on the production. “We have spent a whole lot of money and I can’t really give you a specific figure either in naira or dollars. There are certain things I want to see and experience in movies but
these are things you can only do in your own movie,” he stressed.
Ogoloma, who took out time to score the cast and crew of the action packed film, said that the story was written based on real life experience. “The film features top Nollywood actors and actresses like Yul Edochie, Ini Edo, Olu Jacobs, Joseph Benjamin, Gentle Jack, Ernest Obi, Fedrick Leonard, amongst others. Some of the production crew recently flew into the country as well to be part of the new movie. Some of them are Roger Russell who will be in charge of sounds, Luke Biggins, a top video director who was a crewmember of popular film, Lord Of The Rings, Camille Liberto and Hoffman Akubeze aka Don Chichi, coordinator of the project. The film will be directed by Earnest Obi”.
