A month after kidnap kingpin Evans became a national sensation, a Nollywood movie that draws inspiration from his infamy is set for a release.
‘Evans: The city of crime’ will have been written, shot, edited and produced in record time — if its story line is centrally about the man described as the “most notorious kidnapper in Nigeria”.
It features Kevin Ikeduba and other relatively known actors.
Justward James, a Nollywood producer, shared the poster of the movie on his Instagram page.
“Don’t get it twisted… Guys no dey smile #The Evans, coming out next weekend,” the producer with a username, jama.gold, wrote as his caption.
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans was arrested in connection to several kidnappings in the country.
The 31-year-old admitted to owning properties in Nigeria and Ghana, and also confessed to his crimes.
Evans is yet to be tried in a court of law.
He was arrested in Magodo Phase 2 GRA in the Shangisha area of Lagos on June 10.
‘Oyenusi,’ a movie about the life of a robber in Ibadan, and ’93 Days’ — about how the country battled Ebola virus disease — are two recent adaptations of real life situations in Nigeria.
The difference between those movies and the upcoming ‘Evans: The city of crime’ is that the real life issues they were adapted from had reached a conclusion before film ideas were conceived.
According to the poster, the movie has two seasons. Upon release, it will be available in Alaba, Onitsha and Aba.
