Rise of The Saints, a feature-length film produced by Grand Redemption Platform, co-produced by Accelerate TV, and distributed by Silverbird Film Distribution will be available to watch in cinemas nationwide on October 9, 2020.
The film is a fictitious spin on events that take place centuries after the happenings in the account of the legend of Moremi Ajasoro – Princess of the Yoruba Peoples, are reported to have occurred.
A special viewing with industry stakeholders is scheduled to take place in Filmhouse IMAX cinemas, Lekki a few days before the actual release date. The film features Nollywood veterans like Rachel Oniga, Tina Mba, Peter Fatomilola, and Deyemi Okonlawon as well as newcomer Teleola Kuponiyi, who makes his acting debut playing the lead character in the story.
Rise of The Saints was originally scheduled for release on April 17, 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown measures put in place by the Federal Government, the release was pushed forward and now it will be available in cinemas nationwide from the 9th of October, 2020.
