These days, no week passes without news from Nollywood, and August 25, 2023, was no different. Over the Bridge, an upcoming picture, returned to the news as The Garden Theatre unveils the movie’s poster. Here’s all we gleaned from their announcement.

Cast members

In Over the Bridge, we’ll see famous faces like Joke Silva, Akin Lewis, Deyemi Okanlawon and Ozzy Agu (lead actor). We can’t wait to see the zest they bring to our screens and to romance Mummy Joke’s King’s English.

It’s about mental health

Capitalism is the devil’s tool. In Over the Bridge, you’ll see how the pressure of the corporate world makes Folarin (Ozzy Agu) lose his mind. 9-5ers may or may not love this one.

Celebrity writer and producer

Over The Bridge is written by Bose Oshin, best known for her work on The CEO (2016), Nigerian Prince (2018) and MTV Shuga Season 5. Tosin Otudeko is the film’s co-producer and co-writer, the brain behind Heartbeat (2014) and The Wedding Party (2016).

Directed by Tolu Ajayi 

Tolu Ajayi, popularly known for his directorial work on Oga John (2019), is back again. Over the Bridge shares a similar topic — mental health and personal battles.

A range of set locations

The crew filmed at the peak of the tallest corporations in central Lagos and in the state’s local areas like Akodo, Iruoyin.

Principal photography is done

The movie officially completed filming in June 2022, with K.C. Obiajulu (Lockdown, Wizkid’s Essence) behind the big cameras. It’s about to get lit.

The poster is here

On August 25, 2023, Tolu Ajayi took to his Twitter account to share the official film poster. A lot seems to be going on in Folarin’s life, to be honest. Are those the waves of an ocean surrounding him?
