Shot in Lagos by KC Obiajulu (Lagos Big Boy) and produced by Rukeme David Eruotor, Lockdown follows the coincidental and chaotic meeting of six individuals from different works of life as they find themselves trapped at a hospital on a day the government imposes an immediate lockdown. Forced to share the same four walls, professional and character flaws are exposed and an unexpected romance story erupts from the chaos.
“It’s about a fictional virus… This isn’t about the carrier of the virus or the hospital medical staff, but about a few people caught in the wrong place at the wrong time…” said Moses Inwang, the movie director.
Expressing optimism, the Managing Director of FilmOne Entertainment, Moses Babatope, said, “Some of the things we strive to achieve in creating films for theatrical consumption is ensuring that they are relatable and entertaining to the viewing audience… In Lockdown, we have identified a niche content that soothes these qualities, and to know that we have formidable partners in Michael Djaba and director, Moses Inwang, is assuring that we can create magic for the big screen.”
Lockdown was executively produced by Sneeze Films, Micheal Djaba, FilmOne Entertainment, iFactory LIVE, and CEM Media Group. The movie will be distributed by FilmOne Entertainment.
