Charles Okpaleke Gives Updates on Rattlesnake and NTPS

There is no doubt that Living in Bondage: Breaking Free was one of the most talked-about movies in Nigeria towards the end of 2019 and earlier this year when it came to Netflix. The film broke many box office records, wowed cinema-goers, and currently sits as 11th on the highest-grossing Nollywood films.

Charles Okpaleke, CEO of Play Network Studios, sat with 2019 Big Brother Naija housemate, Kim Oprah on her vlog “Keep It Moving” to discuss his inspiration behind the critically acclaimed sequel, and his plans for upcoming films, Rattlesnake, and Nneka the Pretty Serpent.

The Idea for Living in Bondage: Breaking Free Came From His Wife

Charles Okpaleke, his wife, Ogochukwu, and their daughters.

The producer revealed that he got the idea while he was watching a CNN segment with his wife, Ogochukwu Adimorah. The segment was dedicated to analyzing the 1992 prequel, Living in Bondage and while they were watching, his wife suggested he should produce a remake.

He also revealed that the ability of an actor to deliver a specific character and get lost in a role matters the most to him and those are the actors he likes to work with.

He explained that charisma, beauty, and the ability to fully embody the role. The four finalists are currently going through acting school in preparation.

Rattlesnake Is Done With Casting!

Another Nollywood classic that is returning to the big screen courtesy of Charles Okpaleke is 1995 film, Rattlesnake. Charles revealed that the upcoming film has been fully cast and one of our favorite actors, Osas Ighodaro will be in the film.

Rattlesnake was set to come to cinemas between November and December of 2020. However, with the pandemic and delays in production, the producer is optimistic that the film will come to cinemas at the initially stated time. We look forward to seeing the film when it’s released.
