Movies of Thursday, 8 January 2015
September last year, a movie about Castro and Janet Bandu was shot by a certain Odame Films.
This movie titled ‘Castro Amanehunu’ became talk of the nation as many said the producer of the movie did not respect how sensitive the issue was.
The accusations by Ghanaians on this movie generated a fight between two movie producer brothers, Samuel Odame Jnr and Douglas Odame.
Samuel Odame, whose number was found on the movie poster, denied shooting the movie and added that he has not given anyone the permission to shoot a movie with the said title from his production house. Douglas Odame admitted that he shot the movie and was yet to release it but denied using his brother’s production house.
Months after this hot controversy, a new movie poster with the name ‘Obinim Schwarzenegger‘, believed to revolve around the verbal altercation between Bishop Daniel Obinim and TV personality, Afia Schwarzenegger, was seen flying around. When many thought it was just for jokes, a trailer for the movie was then seen afterwards. This proves that indeed a movie with such a title will be out soon.
Who is this movie producer jumping on famous and sensitive issues to shoot his movies? Douglas Odame was spotted last Sunday at Hello FM presenter, Dave Hammer’s wedding and we took some photos of him just for you to know the man behind all these movies.
