Producer of the upcoming film Shadow Parties, Yemi Amodu, has disclosed that his original plan for the film was for Omotola to bathe naked under waterfalls.
Shadow Parties is a film about a neighborhood feud that escalates into a national crisis, resulting in distrust, hatred, murders, arson, kidnapping, and other vices. Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Segun Arinze, Yemi Black, Sola Shobowale, Jibola Dabo, Toyin Abraham, and others star in the film.
“Most of our films lack originality,” Amodu stated in an interview with Phenomenal. Omotola was intended to bathe naked under the waterfalls, but we weren’t able to pull it off.”
Asked about the cost of featuring Omotola in the movie, he said: ““One thing is sure: if you have the right cast, you have a good film. Because I have an important message to pass, I have to go for actors that people will like to watch, those they can easily connect to and listen to. I, for instance, see Omotola as an ambassador of peace. So, if I am writing about peace, it is sensible for me to think in her direction. I also need someone who would be able to interpret the role well. When she is abducted, she should be able to tell her abductors some truth.”
