Bad Comments was released in cinemas in 2021 and starred Jim Iyke, Ini Edo, Osas Ighodaro, Patience Ozokwor, and a host of other Nollywood stars. The story followed Frank Orji (Jim Iyke), an established actor, who decides to get back at the people responsible for initiating a smear campaign against him in the digital space. The movie saw favourable goodwill at the Nigerian box office and was recently selected for the 17th edition of the Harlem International Film Festival in New York. It was also licensed to Amazon Prime Video earlier this 2022.
According to Jim Iyke’s 6th Sense film production company, the sequel The Crusader is underway and principal photography is slated for July 2022. This project is in conjunction with film and tourism boards in Dubai, Dar es Salam and Lagos.
Whether this Bad Comments sequel will debut in cinemas or Amazon Prime Video hasn’t been addressed yet. Time will tell.
