Actor, Ramsey Nouah reveals he is remaking popular movie ‘Living in Bondage’

By Patricia Uyeh

Dapper-looking  Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah has revealed that he intends to remake of  ‘Living Bondage’  which birthed the Nigerian movie industry. According to him, he is directing the sequel to the film which was originally released in 1992.

He disclosed this in a chat with The Cable Lifestyle, saying: “Myself and Charles Adeleke with this great director, Steve Gukas. We’re trying to do the sequel to ‘Living in Bondage’. I’m directing it and Steve is producing it.

“Charles Adeleke was the one that actually said let’s do a sequel to ‘Living in Bondage’. I asked him if he’s sure and he said yeah people will go and watch it.”

Speaking on the challenges faced on the project, Ramsey Nouah said:

“Here’s the issue, at the time we originally shot ‘Living in Bondage’, about 20 years ago, the generation of those who actually saw it, I doubt if they go to the cinemas,”

“So, now the issue is to balance the story. In 2015, we went to get the license from the original owner, Kenneth Nnebue. We went to look for him, we got the license and for two years we were having problems with writing the story.

“To get the demographic of those who originally watched it and the demographics of today. We’ve done over 10 drafts already before we finally came to this last one.”

Speaking on the movie casts for the sequel, Nouah said:

 “We still have Kenneth Okwonkwo, he’s very much there. We also have Bob-Manuel Udokwu, Kanayo O. Kanayo. Among the young actors, we have Eyinna Nwigwe. I’m also acting in it.”
