GENEVIEVE NNAJI JOINS THE CAST OF 'HALF OF A YELLOW SUN'
The Member of the Federal Republic (MFR) award recipient will play Ms Adebayo, another professor who develops a flirtatious relationship with her colleague Mr Odenigbo (Ejiofor).
Set during the Nigerian-Biafran War of 1967 – 1970, the novel, which won the Orange Prize for fiction explores the impact of this conflict through the twisting story of a University Professor (Ejiofor) and his lover (Newton) her sister, a British ex-pat, and a young houseboy.
After 'Doctor Bello' which will see her feature alongside US actor Isaiah Washington, Vivica A Fox and Jimmy Jean-Louis, this is the second major role the Imo-state citizen is getting involved in.
Filming of Half of a Yellow sun will however commence next month and will be released in 2013.
I'm a huge fan of Genevieve, can't wait to see her input (and others' as well)
