Published

on

Actor and TV presenter James Gardiner has revealed that he has thought about the possibility of playing the role of Rawlings in any future movie about the ex-Ghana President.

Host of the Tonight Show, Andrew Tandoh Adote pointed out the unique resemblance between James and the ex-president when the former made an appearance on his show last Sunday on Joy Prime.

Mr. Adote quipped, “Do you know you look like Rawlings? Any future movie, you for dey inside. Haven’t you thought about it? I am sure it is not only me. The eyes and everything… Only you must lose weight. I even thought you were related to him at some point.”

James Gardiner responded in the affirmative stating, “Oh yes I have thought about that, you will never know.”

James Gardiner, who is a familiar face when it comes to love scenes in Ghanaian and Nigerian movies, may as well use such a future opportunity to demonstrate his versatility.

Peter Sedufia -directed ‘Sidechic Gang’ premieres this March!

Published

on

OldFilm Production, the outfit that published award-winning  period piece “Keteke”, is set to follow it up with highly-anticipated comedy ‘Sidechic Gang’ this March.

Starring Nana Ama McBrown, Lydia Forson, Sika Osei, Adjetey Anang, Bernard Nyarko, Eddie Kufour, Akorfa Edjeane among others, the movie is expected to prove a landmark piece, like “Keteke” did when it was released last year.

Director and CEO of OldFilm Productions, Peter Sedufia, is confident that the motion picture is headed  “beyond the horizon” when it is finally outdoored on March 3 at the Silverbird Cinemas (Accra Mall and West Hill Mall).

 

Synopsis:

“Three female friends find out they can make fortunes from exposing cheating husbands and boyfriends after making tons of cash unexpectedly from reporting a cheating husband to the wife.

They quit their ushering job to set up “Sidechic Gang” – an agency solely dedicated to clamping down the side chick menace. Their services are available to only women.

After few exposè, their Sidechic Gang becomes popular, attracting traffic from victims of side chicks. This translates into more cash for them. The men in the town are unhappy with the sudden popularity of the gang.

The Sidechic Gang’s biggest deal is yet to hit them. It comes from a filthy rich man who suspects his fiancée is cheating on him. He is aware the gang does not serve men, but,                      he is willing to pay anything it costs to justify his suspicion. The gang takes on the task. They know what this means for their bank account. Their greatest opposition, however,             is the many aggrieved men who benefit from the services of side chicks, and would do anything to ensure they fail.

Will the Sidechic Gang succeed in their quest or, the aggrieved men will?”
