Danced-themed movie, “I’ll Take My Chances” is set to premiere in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State later this month. The movie which stars Ini Edo, Bryan Okwara, Jide Kosoko, Biola Williams, Lilian Ikpe and the dearly departed Nollywood great, Sam Loco Efe will celebrate its world premiere on the 24th of September 2011 in Uyo.
The movie was produced by Emem Isong and directed by Desmond Elliot. The producers of the movie which will premiere in December 2011 have dedicated the film to Sam Loco Efe as this was one of the last movies he shot before he passed away.
In a recent statement to CelebRegion.com, the movie’s producer, Emem Isong shared the reason why the movie is premiering in Uyo – “We decided to premiere the movie in Uyo as a show of solidarity with the good people of Akwa Ibom because most of the film was shot there and depicts culture from that area. We also received much support while shooting so it will be great for them to see it first. September also happens to be the month Akwa Ibom state was created so I think its very apt for it to be shown during that period.“
The producer also talked about the movie honouring the memory of Sam Loco Efe, “It is poignant for me to release this film because this is possibly one of the last most recent films acted by Uncle Sam and he was outstanding in his performance! The film is infact dedicated to him.“
