While the audience awaits the release of the biopic on Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, BAP Productions also announced the shoot of another project, House of Gaa. In anticipation of these titles, the production company will now also be bringing Wire Wire to the view of the audience.
Though nothing is yet known about the plot of the story, we can only assume from the title and cast that it is fraud-related. The producer of the film, Bolanle Austen-Peters posted on her Instagram page, “Started Wire Wire with an incredible line-up of phenomenal actors and amazing story.”
Nothing is yet known about the release date and distribution channel that the film will take, but you can trust to get that information first from Shock once anything is said of it.
Since Bling Lagosians was launched at the box office on the 16th of June, 2019, none of Bolanle Austen-Peters’ products has been to the cinema, although her biopic title, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti was at the cinema for just one week from Friday 8th of September, 2023 as part of the requirements to be fulfilled for being shortlisted for Oscars. Bling Lagosians grossed a sum of N120.13 million. Four years after the hiatus from the big screen, is Bolanle Austen-Peters making a comeback to the cinema with Wire Wire? For now, nothing is yet to be said about the distribution channel that the film will be taking.
In an exclusive with Shock, Bolanle admits that she would love to come back to the box office when she gets the muscle to push such an adventure. Could Wire Wire be that movie she has exerted the energy on?
