The resurrection day for Nollywood classic, ‘Living in Bondage’ has come, 26 years after it was first made.

Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah says he is directing a sequel to the film, which was originally released in 1992.

"I’m working on ‘Living in Bondage’.

"Myself and Charles Adeleke with this great director, Steve Gukas.

"We’re trying to do the sequel to ‘Living in Bondage’. I’m directing it and Steve is producing it.

"Charles Adeleke was the one that actually said let’s do a sequel to ‘Living in Bondage’.

"I asked him if he’s sure and he said yeah people will go and watch it."

Nouah spoke about his challenges on the project and his concerns about the target audience, since the original film was made two decades ago.

“Here’s the issue, at the time we originally shot ‘Living in Bondage’, about 20 years ago, the generation of those who actually saw it, I doubt if they go to the cinemas,” he said.

“So, now the issue is to balance the story. In 2015, we went to get the license from the original owner, Kenneth Nnebue. We went to look for him, we got the license and for two years we were having problems with writing the story.

“To get the demographic of those who originally watched it and the demographics of today. We’ve done over 10 drafts already before we finally came to this last one.” He added.

Nouah also revealed that Kenneth Okwonkwo, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, Kanayo O. Kanayo, who were in the original film, will star in the sequel.

Nollywood started with ‘Living In Bondage’ so this sequel will honour the film that launched a whole industry.
