Scheduled for an October 15th, 2021 release!
Fresh off the heels of the blockbuster Quam’s Money and family favorite DOD: Day of Destiny, Inkblot Productions is set to release its highly anticipated first film of 2021 the coming-of-age comedy-drama Charge and Bail.
Deeply woven into the fabric of Nollywood, Inkblot is releasing such cultural touchstones. The production company is focused on bringing great Nigerian stories to the audiences and is working with amazing visionary storytellers to do so.
Charge and Bail is directed by Uyoyou Adia (writer of Nneka the Pretty Serpent and Ghost and the Tout Too). It stars Zainab Balogun as Boma, a high-flying lawyer from the upper class who finds herself posted to a Charge and Bail law firm run by Stan Nze as Dotun and his brother Wole (played by Femi Adebayo) during her NYSC service year. A culture clash ensues between the haves and the have nots as Boma tries to navigate the new world.
The project also stars Folu Storms, Tope Olowoniyan, Eso Dike, Craze Clown and Chigul. These talented actors are joined by veterans Bimbo Manuel and Chris Iheuwa, as well as a galaxy of Nollywood talent such as Pere Egbi of Big Brother Nigeria Fame.
Speaking on the upcoming release of Charge and Bail, the writer/producer and Inkblot co-founder Chinaza Onuzo had this to say: “Zulu, Damola and I were delighted to work with Uyoyou Adia on Charge and Bail. Uyoyou is a talented director with a strong vision and collaborative spirit. We can't wait to show everyone the magic she made working with an amazing set of collaborators."
Speaking on why she chose to collaborate with Inkblot to direct her first cinema film Uyo Adia says: “The story of Charge and Bail is very dear to my heart. It’s an exciting story about a young woman in Nigeria seeking to find herself in a place where she least expects. It’s a story that resonated deeply with me and will resonate with the Nigerian audience.”
Charge and Bail marks Inkblot’s seventh collaboration with Film One Entertainment, the leading distribution company in Nigeria. Together, their collaborations have generated over one billion naira in box office sales at Nigerian cinemas.
Charge And Bail is set for an October 15th, 2021 release and is sure to delight audiences in typical Inkblot fashion.
