The long-awaited crime drama, Render to Caesar, finally takes its bow at cinemas nationwide as from March 28.
A production of Mighty Man Entertainment, the movie examines themes of crime and corruption, psychological trauma, as well as friendship and romance, in a story that chronicles the journey of two friends who return home from abroad to join a special programme in the police force as detectives. They are immediately assigned the daunting mission to hunt and apprehend a psychotic crime lord wreaking havoc in Africa’s most populous city. Compounding their lack of progress is a series of derogatory editorials published by a popular but prejudiced media entrepreneur, and monitored by the increasingly irritated Police Affairs Minister. And just when the detectives finally box their adversary into a corner, he responds with a joker that not only turns the game on its head, but threatens to alter the lives of its players … permanently.
Produced by ex-banker turned filmmaker, Desmond Ovbiagele, Render to Caesar features an outstanding array of Nigeria’s finest acting talent including Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, Lottery Ticket, The Wire (TV series), 24 (TV series)), Omoni Oboli (co-producer with Nnamdi Oboli), Wale Ojo, Kalu Ikeagwu, Bimbo Manuel, Dede Mabiaku, Lucky Ejim, Chris Iheuwa, Kehinde Bankole and several others.
Shot on the acclaimed Red Epic camera, Render to Caesar will be available for viewing at high resolution DCP on screens nationwide.
