imperialdreams keke BoyegaFrom “Half of a Yellow Sun” to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, Nigerian Hollywood actor John Boyega has made quite a name for himself as a rising star.

The 23-year-old actor’s next movie that you absolutely have to see is a movie called “Imperial Dreams” where he plays an ex-con named Bambi struggling with poverty as he raises his son and pursues his dream of writing in Watts’s Imperial Courts housing project.

This movie was actually to be released before Star Wars. The movie was seen by director J.J Abrams and that’s how John Boyega landed the role of a lifetime in Star Wars.

It also stars Rotimi Akinosho, Keke Palmer, Anika Noni Rose, Sufe Bradshaw and more. Imperial Dreams is an American drama film written and directed by Malik Vitthal.

      Please do your research. He’s British and has lived in England all his life so nailing the American accent is a big deal. and no, contrary to what Naija AOPs try to do, the two accents are not the same.

    No! He is british and still lives in england. He came to america for his breakthrough roles in star wars 2yrs ago!

    No, he is not American and never lived here. He actually still doesn’t live here when he’s not shooting movies.

    Looks like a really good movie. Yes it is low budget and independent (as evidenced by the Sundance showing,) but hopefully we get to see a well produced and acted movie.
