NOLLYWOOD AND GHOLLYWOOD CONVERGE FOR BURSTING OUT AND HOLDING HOPE.
MAJID, GENEVIEVE DAZZLE IN BURSTING OUT
Nigerian screen diva, Genevieve Nnaji and famous Ghanaian actor, Majid Michael are at it again as they put up stellar performances in the yet-to-be premiered Royal Arts Academy Production's flick, Bursting Out. The duo whose last feature together was in the movie Silent Scandal where they were the lead actors play the leading roles in Bursting Out which will premiere on August 8, 2010. Bursting Out is a romantic comedy which humorously shows the expectations of the Nigerian society on the single career woman. Zara's friends share these societal views and force Zara through a series of dates in a bid to marry her off. Zara isn't swayed by any of the men and insists that she's happy alone. But is she really?
Bursting Out is produced by Emem Isong and directed by Desmond Elliot and Daniel Ademinokan. The premiere of Bursting out on Sunday, August 8, 2010 at Silverbird Galleria, Lagos will be done alongside another Royal Arts Academy Production master piece, Holding Hope. The story was written by Uche Jombo, Emem Isong, and Uduak Uguamanam. With impressive cast such as Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliot, Nadia Buhari, Biola Williams, Ngozi Nwosu, Rukky Sanda and many others, we just have to hold our hopes on this one. Speaking on the movie, Bursting Out, Uche Jombo said “we want to make people cry, laugh and perhaps pause and think at the same time. It's a movie that we intend and want people to see in the cinema, and be moved by it, cry about it, and at the same time, laugh. Really, life is too short, as there are things you can change in life, but there are also things you cannot change.' The trio, Emem Isong, Desmond Elliot and Uche Jombo, the brains behind Bursting Out, are set to out-do their first outing and prove to all and sundry that the success of their first outing was not a stroke of luck.
