After many years of inactivity, ace movie producer and the owner of OGD Pictures, Tade Ogidan is set to partner with Solution Media & Infotech Limited (SMIL) for the production of a world class movie titled â€œGold Statueâ€.
Making this known at a Media round-table at Hi-Impact Planet Amusement Park, an arm of Solution Media & Infotech Limited, Ogidan disclosed that the movie will be filmed across four locations – Lagos, Ilesha, Dubai and London – and will feature artistes like Alibaba, RMD, Sola Sobowale,Gabriel Afolayan, KunleRhemmy,Segun Arinze among so many others.
According to Ogidan, â€œthe primary location for the filming is Hi-Impact Planet Amusement Park which is owned by Solution Media, a company I consider as having perhaps one of the craziest equipment anyone can find around.â€
Answering a question on why it took him so long to come up with a movie after the last one, Ogidan said production of quality movies require a lot of funding, research, time and equipment.
While noting that the frequency of movies churned out is not really the best idea, another contributor, Alibaba who is also one of the artists to feature in the movie said that the quality of production that will go into Gold Statue will provide a template for others to follow.
â€œFrom the directors, actors as well as technical and cultural values exhibited in the Gold Statue, it stands to be a film to watch over again.â€ Alibaba said.
Gold Statue is a comedy adventure drama that follows the adventure of two young men in search of a Gold Statue. It will take the audience through a series of emotions, intrigues, suspense and drama which is designed for the family.
In his comment, the Managing Director of Solution Media & Infotech Limited, Prince Adeyeloye Lipede, said his company decided to go into partnership with Ogidan because of his impeccable track record in the area of film production and expressed his confidence that Gold Statue will not be any different.
