In a move considered by many as major, a number of production studios have come together to make history as they announce conclusion of principal photography of the comedy movie, Plan C on Sony Venice 2 camera. This will be the first time Sony Venice 2 will be used in Africa. Sony Venice 2 is a recent camera that was used in filming major Hollywood movies such as Avatar, Black Panther and Maverick.
The movie, titled Plan C is a comedy film starring major Nollywood stars such as Nkem Owoh, Akin Lewis, Yvonne Jegede, Lizzy Jay, Bimbo Akintola, Faithia Balogun, Uzor Arukwe, Frank Donga, Kelechi Udegbe, Bianca Ugowanne, Greg Ojeifua, Ayo Badmus, Jigan Babaoja, Mama No Network, Westy Baba, Lydia Lawrence Nze, Maryjane Ogu, Alariya and others.
Plan C’s comedic story grips you from the opening scene till the last. It tells the story of an intending couple Tishe and Nnamdi, a naughty sister, hilarious parents from both sides and host of silly friends who make the movie non-stop fun from start to finish.
Tishe’s dad owns one of Nigeria’s biggest real estate firms while Nnamdi’s father is a
major land speculator. If both businesses merge, theirs will be a major conglomerate.
To ensure the future of their company and cement their long-time friendship, both men resolve to force their eligible children into an arranged union. But the couple have other plans. Nnamdi aspires to be film producer and wants nothing to do with his dad’s business and the planned wedding. Scared of losing his inheritance if he opposes the wedding, he comes up with a plan to be kidnapped on the wedding day! He will be ransomed and with that money, start life afresh somewhere far away.
Unknown to Nnamdi, Tishe also has a similar plan in protest against the forced union. She will be kidnaped but this time she plans to put the blame on Nnamdi, his dubious friends and his career choices. In Tishe’s mind, this will show Nnamdi is not husband material. With that, her plan to take over her father’s company will be back on course. Each party enlists their friends to pull off their plans but things go horribly wrong from the start.
Tishe’s friends kidnap the couple on their way to the wedding. Nnamdi’s friends panic as they watch their guy being kidnapped! As Plan A fails, they go for plan B and kidnap Tishe and her friends but to the shock of both parties, PLAN C unravels as real kidnappers led by the notorious Ossai end kidnapping everyone!
While all this is going on, the couple’s families have called in the police who launch a search for the bride and groom.
Tishe and Nnamdi realize they’re in trouble since the kidnappers are not known to them or their friends.
Now it’s up to the couple’s friends and naughty sister to join forces and hack a near-impossible escape.
Directed by Samuel ‘Bigsam’ Olatunji, produced by seasoned producers led by Wale Osagie Muraina, others are Adebola Adeyela (Lizzy Jay), Bianca Ugowanne and Olukanmi Abayomi (Abazee).
Yvonne Jegede, a leading Nollywood actress is an associate producer on the project.
Now in post production, Plan C will be ready in few months and plans are in top gear to colour grade it in Hollywood.
Speaking on the movie, the director, Bigsam said it’s an ambitious project that cost an arm and a leg.
“Plan C is the kind of story Nollywood would be proud of. It’s comedy told with depth of story, technical deft, and notable performers that will grip you from the opening scene to the last.
We took our time to weave it layer upon layer because the scale of the story has prompted us to have a sequel planned.
Plan C has major supports from Tribitat, a major real estate company led by Tony Kolawole (Aspire), Emmanuel Abikoye and Gbenga Adeleke. It’s the parent company of Billionaire Realtors Group.
Billed for theatrical run before debut on VOD platforms, Plan C is executive produced by Heavyweight Studios (Led by Samuel ‘Bigsam’ Olatunji), LizzyJay Production, Abazee Production and Bianca Ugo Studios.
