FilmOne Distribution and Rok Studios have announced, that the highly anticipated film “Thy Will be Done”, by multiple award-winning director Obi Emelonye, will be released in cinemas across Nigeria from May 15th 2015. Obi Emelonye, renowned for directing Box office hits such as The Mirror Boy, Last Flight To Abuja, will have moviegoers swarming in great numbers to watch his latest work.
Ramsey Noah and Mercy Johnson – Okojie, who were ex-lovers in 30 days in Atlanta, team up to render an unforgettable, heart endearing film as a married couple and are joined by Mary Njoku, to set off a thrilling chain reaction in this romantic drama. The movie has been consensually dubbed by movie pundits and critics to fly the ‘Box office hit flag’ at full mast in cinemas.
The film revolves around Pius, a happily married pastor in charge of a large church. His first wife whom he buried seven years ago suddenly shows up, and his world is thrown into turmoil. His present wife is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the intruder remains permanently out of his life. He has to make a tough decision as to which wife will remain in his home, after all, he was legally married to both; between old sins and new loyalties, taking firm action and surrendering to God’s will. Weakened by guilt and overwhelmed by sensational revelations, nothing would have prepared Pius for how rapidly things would descend into chaos…for hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
Jason Njoku of Rok Studios says: ‘This is a huge cinema event for Nigeria and we think that moviegoers will be totally enthralled by the incredible story, the quality of production and the incredible performances from Nollywood’s finest. Rok Studios has huge ambitions in terms of re-energising Nollywood and producing international-standard cinema from Nigeria. Thy Will Be Done, for us, is the blueprint, the gold standard, if you will, in terms of quality and awesome storytelling that we hope will now define Nollywood.’
According to Mr Moses Babatope, the COO of FilmOne distribution, “Obi Emelonye is a man who knows his onions, and there are precedents to attest to this fact not least award wins in 3 consecutive years at the prestigious Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards . We are proud to work with ROK Studios, forerunners in Nollywood film and tv production. It is our utmost belief that ‘Thy will be done’ has the potentials of surpassing expectations at the Nigerian Box office”.
