Action packed movie “Klippers” is set for release in cinemas across Nigeria on August 10th, 2018.
“Klippers” is written and directed by Ofu Obekpa, a USA based filmmaker who starred in “Captain America”, “Civil war” and Black Panther.
The movie is about an assassin sent by his psychotic employer to kill his ex-wife. In his quest to accomplish the task, the assassin becomes familiar with his target and this makes his mission rather difficult. His employer is impatient and senses that all is not well. In comes another hit man with an intimidating profile who has a scary success record of getting the job done. A series of events triggers a faceoff and the race to stay alive begins.
According to Obekpa, “Nothing good comes easy and only those who step out of their comfort zone determined to actualize their dreams can make it.
“I was fully aware of this especially taking the highly competitive movie terrain into consideration. I ensured I wrote a good screenplay which Kevin Nash and other Hollywood Celebrity actors could not resist and wanted to be a part of. I also drew heavily from what I learned in the Film Connection from my mentor, Kevin Christopher of Rite Media in Atlanta. The rest, as they say, is history and I’m elated that Nigerians will watch an action-packed movie that they can be proud of,” he added.
In the movie, Ofu stars alongside WWE legend Kevin Nash, formerly known as Diesel (John Wick, Magic Mike XXL), Nigerian international seasoned actor, Conphidance, known for his role in the Emmy Award-winning TV series “Atlanta”, “The Inspector”, Libby Blanton (Dark Roads 79, Push), the gorgeous Francine Locke (Nashville, Risky Business) and Robert Pralgo (Furious 7, Avengers: Infinity War).
After its run in Nigeria, “Klippers” will also be watched in Czech Republic, Japan, France, Japan, Russia, Brazil and Spain.
