The remake of ‘Glamour Girls’, a 1994 Nollywood blockbuster, will be premiered in cinemas across the country in December 2021.
Charles Okpaleke, the chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder of Play Networks, broke the news on his social media page on Wednesday.
“A story that would involve 3 generations of actresses. I’m going all out on this one!,” he wrote in a terse post on his Instagram page accompanied by a flyer of the movie.
Directed by Chika Onukwufor, the much-awaited remake of the movie follows the story of four independent single women who embarked on questionable jobs within Nigeria’s traditionally patriarchal society.
The original version of the movie starred several Nollywood heavyweights including Liz Benson, Ngozi Ezeonu, Eucharia Anuobi, Pat Attah, Ernest Obi, Zack Orji among others.
The development comes a few months after Okpaleke had secured the copyrights for the remake of the 1994 classic and “Rattle Snake” under Play Network Africa, his production company.
It also comes after Okpaleke acquired the rights for ‘Living in Bondage’. ‘Living in Bondage: Breaking Free’, a sequel to the movie, was directed by Ramsey Nouah, veteran actor.
TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how the thriller snagged seven plaques at the 2020 edition of the African Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), with Larry Gaga also winning an award for contributing to the movie.
