Rattlesnake: The Ahanna Story is a sequel to the 1995 Nollywood crime-thriller “Rattle Snake” that revolved around the story of Ahanna who was roped into a life of crime after going through hardship after the death of his father. He was thrown into a dilemma between pursuing his love interest or his path of crime.
In January we were thrilled at the news of the famous Rattlesnake remake being produced by Charles Okpaleke, who is now known as the king of Nollywood remakes.
Okpaleke who produced Living in bondage: Breaking Free has also revealed he will be producing a few more of our favourite old Nollywood movies, including the remakes of Glamour girls, Nneka the Pretty Serpent and also Rattlesnake.
Auditions for the 1995 movie remake began in May after a call for actors was made by PlayNetworks Studious through an Instagram post. Later in August, it was revealed that AMVCA winning scriptwriter, Nicole Asinugo, is on board as the scriptwriter for Rattlesnake. It was also revealed by PlayNetworks that Ramsey Nuoah would be directing the movie, and from Nuoah’s directorial debut in Living in Bondage: Breaking Free, it’s safe to assume we all are excited about this sophomore movie.
Charles Okpaleke recently released the official poster for the movie which got many Nigerians excited about the upcoming film.
Some of the cast members that have been revealed include Osas Ighodaro, Stan Nze, Efe Iwara, Tobi Bakre and Emeka Nwagbarocha. Information on release dates and characters are yet to be fully released.
