A new poster and trailer has been released for the crime/suspense thriller, Render to Caesar. The story centers on two friends who return home from abroad to join a special program in the Nigerian police force as detectives assigned to hunt and apprehend a psychotic crime lord whose nefarious activities are an embarrassment to the government.
Render to Caesar features a formidable array of Nigeria’s foremost acting talent including Gbenga Akinnagbe, international star of the popular HBO TV series The Wire, as well as several Hollywood movies (The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, Edge of Darkness, The Savages, Lottery Ticket), Omoni Oboli (The Figurine, Anchor Baby), Wale Ojo (Phone Swap) and Lucky Ejim (The Tenant). No less outstanding is the supporting cast which includes amongst others Bimbo Manuel, Dede Mabiaku, Kalu Ikeagwu, Chris Iheuwa, Tomi Odunsi and Kehinde Bankole. Also featuring in cameo turns are Steve Onu (aka “Yaw” of Wazobia FM), MC Abbey, Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere and Femi Jacobs.
Produced and directed by Desmond Ovbiagele, with Nnamdi Oboli & Omoni Oboli as co-producers, Render to Caesar was sumptuously photographed by John Askwith (whose credits include camera duty on the upcoming Hollywood remake of Robocop) and is scheduled for cinema release later in 2013.
