By JOHN SPIFF
Coming on the heels of the success of their box office hits, Peekaboo Productions, the producers of 30 Days in Atlanta, A Trip to Jamaica and 10 days in Sun City are set to unveil their December offering, titled ‘The Accidental Spy’.
Filled with intrigue, action, drama, and rib-cracking comedy, ‘The Accidental Spy’ tells the story of IT specialist, Emmanuel Prince, who gets blindsided by his cheating girlfriend. When Prince travels to London and signs up for a reality show to take his mind off his recent woes, he unwittingly gets caught in the middle of a plot by a powerful Nigerian criminal cartel.
A co-production of Peekaboo Productions and Corporate World Entertainment, the film sees AY and Ramsey Nouah, the award-winning duo from 30 Days in Atlanta back in the saddle with diversely talented cast such as Alibaba (The Wedding Party), Emma Oh My God (The Wedding Party), Rahama Sadau (TATU), David Jones David (Hotel Majestic), Bucci Franklin (Jemeji), Bryan Okwara, Hollywood actor, Miguel Nunez Jr. (Juwana Man), South African star, Thenjiwe Moseley (10 Days In Sun City), and British debutante, Christine Allado, to name a few.
Lead writer and producer, Darlington Abuda had this to say about his latest creation: “The Accidental Spy is a labour of love and I can’t think of a better way to enter the December festive season. I am indeed elated by the fact that movie-lovers across Nigeria and in various other territories are going to enjoy this potpourri of love, laughter and action. We shot the movie with the mindset of giving Nigerians an awesome cinematic experience. I’ve always wanted to make a film in London. It’s obviously one of the great cities of the world, and when you make a film in a foreign city you get a chance to really experience and imbibe their culture.”
The Accidental Spy is pegged as a certain box office hit for Peekaboo Production, Corporate World Entertainment Limited , especially with FilmOne Distribution Limited, Nigeria’s fastest growing film distribution company and the distributors of The Wedding Party, 10 Days In Sun City, A Trip to Jamaica, Fifty, Wives on Strike and Ghana Must Go, handling the film’s release.
Moses Babatope, Group Executive Director and COO of FilmOne, shared his excitement on the project, saying “We are delighted to partner with Corporate World Entertainment on yet another film that is sure to set the Nigerian box office alight. The CWE team has perfected the recipe for entertaining audiences all over the world. We are proud to bring this film to Nigerian audiences”.
The movie was shot on location in lagos, London and Amsterdam, and is set to hit cinemas across Nigeria from December 1, 2017.
