This might just give answers to stories that have gone on from generation to generation.
The Origin: Madam Koi Koi, the latest Nollywood title, featuring Ireti Doyle, will revisit an old boarding school myth when it is released.
In the recently released official teaser by the producers, Jay Franklyn Jituboh and Micheal W. Ndiomu, the audience got a first look at what’s to come in the horror movie that promises to take them back in time. From the short clip, it’s clear Doyle will play the role of a catholic school administrator in what looks like a boarding house.
Written by Jituboh in collaboration with Dale Falola, The Origin will tell the story of a dark spirit who was forgotten for decades until she awakens to seek vengeance.
Directed by Jituboh, the film’s cast includes Deyemi Okanlawon and Baaj Adebule who play inspectors on a mission to solve a murder, Chioma Akpotha as a catholic nun, Chukwuka Jude, Martha Ehinome, Nene Aliemeke, Tolulope Odebunmi, Omowunmi Dada, Ejiro Onojaife, Chuks Joseph, Kevin T. Solomon, Temidayo Akinboro, Iremide Adeoye and Racheal Emem Issac.
Principal photography, which wrapped up in 2022, was handled by Idowu Adedapo and Amarachukwu Udoezika. From the behind-the-scenes clips that have been released, the setting of the movie hints at something back in time, in the early 90s.
The Origin: Madam Koi Koi will head straight to the cinema, as it will be distributed by FilmOne Entertainment, but no release date has been revealed yet.
