‘I’ll Take My Chances’ – New Movie Produced by Ini Edo & Emem Isong

Category : Events, News, Uncategorized

Lagos, Nigeria (September 13 2011) – ‘I’ll Take My Chances’ the much anticipated block buster, premieres in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State on September 24th 2011!


The movie which stars talented actress, Ini Edo and hot new heartthrob Bryan Okwara and lovely dance sensation, Ashleigh Clark is being premiered in Uyo for the world to see.  The movie which was shot in early February has been in post production is finally ready to be revealed to the world. The movie features a stellar cast that includes a retinue of dancers, as well as respected actor Jide Kosoko, Lilian Ikpe, Biola Williams and the late Sam Efe Loco in a spectacular tale that involves drama, suspense, dance and love. The movie was produced by Emem Isong & Ini Edo and directed by Desmond Elliot.

According to Emem Isong, co-producer of the film, ‘We decided to premiere the movie in Uyo as a show of solidarity with the good people of Akwa Ibom because most of the film was shot there and depicts culture from that area. We also received much support while shooting so it will be great for them to see it first. September also happens to be the month Akwa Ibom state was created so I think its very apt for it to be shown during that period.   It is poignant for me to release this film because this is possibly one of the last most recent films acted by Uncle Sam and he was outstanding in  his performance! The film is infact dedicated to him’. ‘I’ll Take My Chances’ screens in cinemas nationwide in December this year.

INI EDO, NOLLYWOOD STARS …. FIGHTS BACK!

Category : News

Its no longer business as usual for journalists who sit down to write junk about celebrities in order to sell their magazines and papers, as was discovered by Michael Alonge, a reporter with Global Excellence who spent several days behind bars!  He was reportedly picked up for questioning by the Police for allegedly attempting to defame the character of Nollywood actress, Ini Edo.

In a story that has been making the rounds on the internet in previous weeks, Mr Alonge had published stories that the actress had engaged in a lesbian relationship with Tonto Dike, another Nollywood actress. When Ini’s husband, Philip Ehiagwina called him to ask where he got the story from, the journalist went on to publish another story that Ini’s husband had threatened his life and if anything happened to him,(Alonge) he should be asked!  Based on that, the actress and her husband decided to report the matter to the Police who invited him for questioning. During interrogation Mr Alonge confessed that he could not substantiate his story as he just heard some people saying it at a joint where he was drinking, so he decided to go ahead and publish it in his paper!    

Meanwhile,  this same journalist was arrested the previous week on instruction by Actor, Jim Iyke and locked up for writing that he had pregnated a married woman who later turned out to have AIDS!!  A story that was said to be false!

A retraction later written by the journalist apologizing for writing both stories!  http://www.nigeriafilms.com/news/8846/14/recanter-jim-iykes-ex-lover-sally-contracts-hiv.html

What is the film about? ‘I would not like to say right now….I think the producers will do that when they are ready. But I will say I had a great time working with the cast and crew in Benue and working with an international team right here in our country’.

The film which was shot entirely on celluloid, was directed by Jeta Amata of ‘Amazing Grace’ fame and boasts an international cast in conjunction with several Nollywood actors. The cast, cut across a varied section of the entertainment world and it will be interesting to see how they fare as actors in this film.  They include British-born actress of Nigerian parentage, Caroline Chikezie, as well as our very own Nollywood siren, Ini Edo.  Caroline Chikezie is a well known actress in Britain who recently crossed over to Hollywood.  Some of her film credits include ‘Eragon’ ‘Footballer’s Wives’ and ‘Aeon Flux’ which she acted with Oscar award winner Charlize Theron . Other actors in the film are Lola Shokeye (better know in music circles as Princess Lola) as well as Afrobeat exponent, Dede Mabiaku.  Dede is said to be a formidable actor of the stage and it will be fun to see if he can translate his skills to film.  We will continue to update you as more information comes out.
