Play Network Studios has released a poster and official title for its forthcoming, highly anticipated project “Hijack 93“.
The movie which was first announced in May is based on a storyline centred around the 1993 hijack of a Nigerian Airways jet by three teenagers.
Not much about the film cast and crew have been revealed but “after taking some time to properly gather first-hand accounts of events,” Play Network is ready for a “lift-off” with ace movie producers Rogers Ofime of Native Media and Agozie Ugwu onboard.
Sharing the interesting update on social media, Charles Okpaleke of Play Network Studios wrote:
