At last a film for movie goers in Nigeria who have been yearning for a break from family drama and love stories. C. J. Obasi, a.k.a The Fiery One, has released a very ‘teasing’ teaser for his forthcoming Gangster-thriller titled ‘O-Town.’
‘O-Town’, the story of a two-bit hustler as he climbs the ladder of a small town’s criminal underworld, is C.J’s follow up to his critically acclaimed award winning horror flick, OJUJU. O-Town tells an ‘overview’ tale of pimps, scammers, and drug dealers as they ravage the moral backbone of a town wholly subjugated by a sadistic and suavely mannered gangster, simply known as The Chairman.”
The 2015 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2015 (AMVCA) Trail Blazer qualifies O-Town as his “Western in an Eastern land”. Written and directed by The Fiery One himself and produced by the ever smiling Oge Obasi, O-Town features – among others – Paul Utomi, Chucks Chyke, Mfon Brutus, Ifu Ennada, and Kalu Ikeagwu.
C.J. is also developing a TV series as well as an unnamed period piece. More videos, photos, cast and crew information can be found here on the O-Town’s website.
