Tango With Me Gets International Distribution Deal
Talking Drum Entertainment, a UK based movies distribution company, specializing in black films has acquired the rights to distribute award winning movie ‘Tango with Me’ in the UK.
The UK based company has already set an August release date for the film. The movie will open across all the major UK and Ireland cinema chains in the first phase before proceeding on to other European countries.
“This is a positive development for African films in general, and Nollywood in particular, because a wider audience will experience our films, and returns on film investments will improve greatly for the benefit of all stakeholders in our bid to take the industry to greater heights”. Mahmood Ali-Balogun, produced and directed the movie under his Brickwall Communications production company, says about the deal.
The film was the highest grossing movie in Nigeria in 2011. The plot of the film revolves around a couple played by Nollywood stars Genevieve Nnaji and Joseph Benjamin, faced with series of moral issues as they weather the storms of trials and tribulations within their young marriage.
