Popular actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has disclosed that a remake of ‘Living in Bondage’, the movie that is acclaimed to have kick-started Nollywood, is in the offing.

He made this known in an interview with The Nation published on Saturday.

Okonkwo, who starred in the 1992 blockbuster,  disclosed that “we are also trying to remake Living In Bondage so that I will finally break free.

Asked if movie lovers would get with the remake a semblance of what they got from the original film produced 26 years ago, the actor said, “Well, if you get what you got 26years ago, then we have done nothing. We are saying that you will get at least five times better than what you got then and I have told you that I have gotten at least five times better than I was then. So, you are going to get a better story. A lot of things we did then we were in shadows but now a lot of them are going to be in substance. You will get something fantastic, something explosive, something beautiful, something that is going to be the 21st century Nollywood because we did the first one in the 20th century.”

In the two-part drama thriller released in 1992 and 1993, Okonkwo stars as Andy, a discontented man who offers his wife Merit (Nnenna Nwabueze) as a sacrifice for money rituals but encounters a string of misfortunes that drove him to madness until he was saved in a church.
