It’s a wrap, and the excitement is palpable as award-winning director, Toka Mcbaror, announces the conclusion of shoot for Made in Heaven, the latest movie by Peekaboo Global Consulting Limited after 21 days on set.
The movie, which is billed for a summer 2019 release, was co-produced with Newlink Entertainment Limited, NewOhens Limited, and Corporate World Entertainment Limited, one of the biggest and most successful audio-visual content production companies in Nigeria.
Made in Heaven features a cast of talented Nigerian actors and actresses including Richard Mofe-Damijo, Ayo Makun, Toyin Abraham, Prince Jide Kosoko, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Nancy Isime, Lasisi Elenu, Kemen Big Brother, Uche Nwaefuna, Erica Nlewedim, Greg Ojefua, Sam Sunny, Jay Franklin Jituboh and a host of others.
The movie is a hilarious blend of love, drama, action and fantasy, as it explores the interventions of the spiritual in the day-to-day lives of its central characters. It about Richard and Angela, two romantics who have always fallen into bad and sometimes abusive relationships. By a sheer twist of fate, they both die on the same night within hours of each other and meet on the hallway to judgment.
Things quickly change when Angela is informed that she is being returned to her earthly body. Richard is devastated and seeks to also return to the world. His request is refused but he tricks his way out of heaven. He is confronted by his Guardian Angel and given a choice: win Angela’s heart in seven days or face dire consequences. He accepts the challenge and begins his quest.
Producer, Darlington Abuda, describes the movie as a labour of love and a testament that hard work prevails. He expresses appreciation to the management of Filmone Distribution for its invaluable support in the production of the movie and the development of Nollywood 2.0.
“The duo of Mr. Moses Babatope and Mr. Kene Okwuosa are to be commended as vision-nurturers and catalysts whenever the story of Nollywood 2.0 is told,” Abuda said.
The film is coming on the heels of the success of their box office hits like 30 Days in Atlanta, A Trip to Jamaica, 10 Days in Sun City, Merry Men and The Accidental Spy.
