October 1 Movie - The New Movie By Kunle Afolayan

Posted in: , ,

October 1 is an upcoming movie and is directed by Kunle Afolayan. The film began pre-production months ago, but they just concluded auditions and started shooting at the end of last month. RML has been able to get some details about those starring in the movie, and some behind the scene pictures.

Some of the movie will be shot in Lagos but there will be location settings in Ondo State. The crew shows they have an eye to detail and historical accuracy as they've acquired several the vintage cars and other props. Deola Sagoe plays the role of Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti and looks it, remember she was the first woman in Nigeria to drive a car? It's also exciting to see that Sadiq Daba is the main character :)

Actors in October 1 are a mix of both Nigerian actors - old and new - and British actors.

Sadiq Daba – Inspector Waziri
Aderupoko – Sergeant Afonja
Fabian Lojede – Corporal Omolodun
Demola Adedoyin – Prince Aderopo
Kehinde Bankole - Miss Tawa
Nick Rhys – Winterbottom
Lawrence Stubbings – Tomkins
Colin David Reese – Rev Dowling

Plot Outline

It’s September 1960, and with Nigeria on the verge of independence from British colonial rule, a northern Nigerian Police Detective, DAN WAZIRI, is urgently despatched by the Colonial Government to the trading post town of Akote in the Western Region of Nigeria to solve a series of female murders that have struck horror in the hearts and minds of the local community. On getting to Akote, more murders are committed, and with local tension high and volatile, Waziri has a race on his hands to solve the case before even more local women are killed.

Set against the backdrop of the national celebratory mood of the impending independence, Waziri is pulled into a game of cat and mouse as he and the killer try to outwit each other… leading to the climatic end in which the life of a popular local female teacher and village belle, TAWA, is held in the balance. Waziri has to race against the clock to capture the killer, save Tawa and solve the crime before the British flag is lowered and the Nigerian flag raised on Independence Day… October 1st.
