‘Beasts Of No Nation' Star To Play Nigerian Immigrant In New Film
Abraham Attah was introduced to the world in Netflix’s first-ever original film, 2015’s Beasts of No Nation.
Since then, we’ve waited to see him land another lead role worthy of his talents.
The Ghanaian actor, who also had a brief but memorable supporting role in Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, is set to play a Nigerian immigrant in the coming-of-age drama, Tasmanian Devil.
The movie will be a debut feature film for Nigerian-American filmmaker, Solomon Oniita, Jr.
Tasmanian Devil follows a 19-year-old immigrant (Attah) who, after moving to the US, struggles to bond with his estranged father, who abandoned him and his mother to become a missionary.
When he joins a college fraternity, he is challenged by his strict father, leaving him in search of his own moral ground.
Attah is joined by two other fantastic indie actors; Adepore Oduye, who plays his mother; and Queen of Katwe’s Nater Guma Mbaho Mwime, who plays his deeply religious father.
No official release date has been announced.
