“This dramatic and highly emotional, action-thriller shines the spotlight on the social issues, and often misguided powers responsible for the vanishing middle class in Nigeria. These same themes are what made the original film an instant classic and remain relevant today,” the official announcement reads.

Written by Daniel Ademinokan and Musa Jeffery, with direction handled by Ademinokan, Owo Blow will be hitting cinemas in 2023.
