lauren londonHekCentrik Productions has formally announced their next feature, a Hollywood feature titled “Turning Point”. The project has been generating a lot of buzz in recent months amongst people in the know within the industry that a Hollywood film starring Nollywood stars in leading roles is in pre-production.

It features Nollywood stars Jackie Appiah, Igoni Archibong, Patience Ozokwor, Enyinna Nwigwe, Ebbe Bassey and Chelsea Eze, alongside Hollywood actors Lauren London (“ATL”, “I Love You, Beth Cooper”, “Good Hair”), Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”, “Law and Order”, “Desperate Housewives”), Todd Bridges (“Diff’rent Strokes”, “Everybody Hates Chris”), Cynda Williams (“Mo’ Better Blues”, “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”) and Joe Estevez (“Apocalypse Now”, “Spanish Fly”).

The movie is written, directed and executive produced by Niyi Towolawi and co-produced by Egor Efiok .  Niyi Towolawi, CEO of HekCentrik Productions comments, “we start principal photography in less than a month and the excitement couldn’t be greater.”

Set in New York, the plot explores ethnic prejudice amongst the various black communities in America (a la “Crash”) and centres around a Nigerian investment banker that bows to family pressure to abandon his American sweetheart for an arranged wife from back home. His life is turned upside-down when the marriage turns out not too rosy, setting off a chain of events that forces him to confront his reckless past.

The Hollywood production crew who have worked on numerous Hollywood blockbusters are very keen to bring to life this innovative approach of Africa-centric storytelling. “They are nothing but a dream team and it’s amazing how they have caught the vision and passion that we convey”. The crew includes award-winning FX makeup artist and E4 PR Star, Lola Maja-Okojevoh.

Filming begins middle of October in America, followed by a trip to Nigeria for additional scenes. “Our crew is very excited to visit Nigeria and a film workshop with Nollywood professionals is being lined up for their time there”, says Towolawi.

Egor Efiok adds, “Writing this movie with Niyi has been a marvelous and bonding experience. My ideas are usually unique and unusual and I found it difficult to collaborate with like-minded people until I met Niyi. We are the perfect tag team and you will definitely be hearing more from HekCentrik Productions and E4 PR in the near future”.
