‘Rattle Snake’ Remake: Nengi Makes Nollywood Debut
Ann ex-housemate of the 2020 Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show, Nengi is set to make her Nollywood debut in the remake of ‘Rattle Snake’, a forthcoming movie by Play Networks.
The entrepreneur from Bayelsa state took to her Twitter page on Wednesday to share a thriller of the project wherein she featured.
The Ramsey Nouah-directed movie is billed to hit the cinemas on November 13, 2020.
Charles Okpaleke, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Play Network, also took to his Instagram page to comment on the forthcoming movie, enjoining the public to anticipate its release.
“This time, we’re doing it the Play Lifestyle way. Save the dates and location. In cinemas November 13th,” he wrote.
It is understood that she recently signed a talent management deal with Play Network, with Charles welcoming her onboard earlier this month.
Nengi, whose real name is Rebecca Hampson, was one of the most-talked-about housemates while the reality show lasted over her friendship with Ozoemena ‘Ozo’ Chukwu.
The forthcoming project is a sequel to the original version of ‘Rattle Snake’, a Nollywood classic, released in 1995.
It follows the story of Ahanna, a young man who gets lured into a life of crime after the death of his father.
It features several movie stars including Osas Ighodaro, a Nigerian-American actress, who will be playing the lead role.
The development comes weeks after Brighto, a fellow reality TV star, also landed his first movie role.
