What do you think?
Ghanaian movie enthusiasts, especially die-hard fans of Leila Djansi will be very disappointed to hear that, the movie maker will no longer shoot any more movies in Ghana after wrapping up her latest project ‘Ties That Bind’.
Leila said “It’s 90% true” that she will not be shooting again in Ghana. This, she said at a press conference organized in Ho, Volta Region.
After the press conference, GhanaCelebrities.Com had a chit chat with the founder of Turning Point Pictures, a Los Angeles based production house to dissect more on the news of her moving out from Ghana.
It can be recollected that Leila Djansi did put on her facebook status sometimes back that, she will be using actress Nia Long in her latest movie. Weeks later she wrote up a different status announcing that Kimberly Elise has actually touched down in Ghana to feature in her movie instead of Nia Long.
People who wanted to see Nia Long in Ghana shared their opinions on that development; many said Leila should have waited and confirm who indeed will feature in her movie before going to public with names. Suddenly Nia Long seemed to have been swapped with Kimberly Elise.
“There was no swap. It wasn’t suddenly! I think it was a media thing. You media guys are hungry . Seriously, it’s like you are starving sometimes, when something blows up in the air, you grab it and run instead of waiting for the meat, you just want to eat the bones. Just wait for the meat.” She defended herself. (more…)
