More wins to Africa! Our away-an son John Boyega is teaming with Netflix via his production company, UpperRoom banner, to develop non-English language films focusing on west and east Africa.
“I am thrilled to partner with Netflix to develop a slate of non-English language feature films focused on African stories, and my team and I are excited to develop original material,” says Boyega. “We are proud to grow this arm of our business with a company that shares our vision.”
UpperRoom productions said it “will develop film projects based on stories, cast, characters, crew, literary properties, mythology, screenplays and/or other elements in or around African countries.”
This is truly another milestone for the African film industry in creating content and projects based on our stories, mythologies and history. We cant wait to see what he has in store for us.
