The Bridge will follow Obadare (played by Demola Adedoyin), a Yoruba prince and Stella (played by Chidinma), a young lady from a distinguished Igbo family, whose love is threatened by tribal prejudice and their parents’ plans for their lives.
When the couple secretly gets married against their parents’ wishes, the consequence shakes the very foundation and sustenance of both families.
The movie is produced by veteran filmmaker Lasun Ray-Eyiwumi and will be directed by Kunle Afolayan – which should make Chidinma very excited. The last time the award-winning director worked with a musician, Angélique Kidjo in The CEO, she walked away with an AMAA.
Besides Adedoyin and Chidinma, The Bridge boasts an impressive cast of new and veteran actors, including Zack Orji, Kunle Afolayan, Tina Mba, Adebayo Salami, Lanre Hassan, Jimoh Aliu and more.
No teaser or trailer has been released just yet, but The Bridge will be in cinemas nationwide from December 8.
