Gird your loins. Director Moses Inwang just released (on Instagram, curiously enough) teasers for his next movie which stars Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
“Alter Ego” which lands next year, sees Omotola in her first role in 3 years. It also appears to be, literally, about an alter ego (or more than one.) “Multiple personalities” are a tricky concept to tackle anywhere, which might be why Omotola herself credits it with taking her out of her comfort zone.
“For a very long time I couldn’t find a script that appealed [to me.] I got to a point in Nollywood and in filmmaking where the more I went out of the country and mixed with my colleagues internationally, I began to understand how much people respected my brand and what they expected of me. […] It wasn’t easy, every year you have someone ask you ‘Omotola, are you not doing movies again?’ but I said to myself, ‘until I find that character that inspires me…’ and luckily, after 3 years, Alter Ego came along.”
If Alter Ego was the one to satisfy these lofty requirements of hers, then, we hope we are ready.
