What should we expect? Scriptwriter, Baruch Apata sayws we should expect to see scenes from the original story: “Expect to see scenes and faces from the original story but ideas not explored before. The story will take a global approach with a background story that answers some questions that the original story barely explores”

Detailing the full length of his role, Bovi tells us we shouldn’t expect comedy from him as he’s known for He described the character as a ‘serious cop’ while also revealing how he had to beg for the role.

Though it’s been 28years since the original release the anticipated sequel was directed by Tosin Igho, produced by Chris Odeh with Ramsey Nouah and Charles Okapeleke as the co-producers.

Play Network Studios, the film production company responsible for the recently released Living in Bondage remake, called “Living in Bondage: Breaking Free”, also acquired rights to recreate other Nollywood classics including Glamour Girls, Rattlesnake and Nneka the Pretty Serpent.

For those who didnt get a chance to watch the classic, the storyline is simple: Nneka uses her supernatural powers to hypnotize any man she fancied and turning him into her zombie. She also had to contend with a number of obstacles and in turn didn’t hesitate to destroy anything that stood between her and her desires.
