The Department, a must watch romantic/crime based movie from the stables of Inkblot productions in association with Closer Pictures has been slated for theatrical release on 30thJanuary 2015. Think Corporate Espionage and think “The Department”, which is a break away from the usual norm of story-telling. A secret organization tagged ‘The Department’ run by young professionals, blackmails Top Executives into selling their companies to the ‘man’ behind the Department. Two lovers, Tolu and Nnamdi, opt out of The Department and get married. They’ve broken the rule, one which the department has refused to ignore. The pressure, intrigues, blackmail from the group, soon tests their love for each other.
The movie parades a blend of established and talented fast rising young stars; Desmond Elliot (When Love Happens), Majid Michel (Being Mrs Elliot),Osas Ighodaro (Ex Ms Black USA, Tinsel), Jide Kosoko (Last Flight to Abuja), O.C. Ukeje (Half Of A Yellow Sun, When love happens), Kenneth Okolie (Ex Mr Nigeria, Mrs Somebody), Seun Akindele (Dazzling Mirage) and Somkele Iyamah (Ex face of Visafone, Gidi Up web series).
According to Mr Kene Mkparu, CEO/MD of FilmOne “It’s not your everyday kind of movie, it’s a new wave of storytelling that allows us to surf on ingenuity and sound technical values. It’s a must see as viewers will be enthralled with the intriguing world of Corporate espionage.”
The Department was written by Chinaza Onuzo, directed by Remi Vaughan- Richards, and produced by Chinaza Onuzo and Uduak Oguamanam. This highly pulsating movie is theatrically distributed by FilmOne.
