The movie Klippers written and directed by ingenuity laden Nigerian International Ofu Obekpa has been slated for release in cinemas across Nigeria on August 10th 2018. The USA based filmmaker who’s not difficult to spot out in Captain America; Civil war and Black Panther has experienced a quantum leaping effect in his career. He is indubitably passionate about making great films which is evidenced in his new feature movie.
Movie Echelons have thrown their weight behind Klippers, an action packed movie laden with thriller and rated as one of the best action movies produced by a Nigerian in the Diaspora. The multi talented Ofu with an enviable filmography 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 Inspectors”, the screen diva Libby Blanton (Dark Roads 79, Push), the gorgeous Francine Locke (Nashville, Risky Business) and the sensational Robert Pralgo (Furious 7, Avengers: Infinity war).
The movie unveils an assassin sent by his psychotic employer to kill his ex-wife. In his quest to accomplish the task, he 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 known for zero tolerance to mediocrity in the dark business and a scary success record of getting the job done. A series of events triggers a face off and the race to stay alive begins.
According to Ofu 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 learnt 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”
Talk about expanding territories, Klippers will also be watched by the teeming populace in Czech Republic, Japan, France, Russia, Poland, Brazil, Spain after its Nigerian run. Klippers opens in cinemas August 10th 2018 and is powered by Skyrunner productions.
