It was previously announced that Nigerian filmmaker Jeta Amata decided to rethink and reshoot his political corruption drama about the volatile oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria, Black Gold. The project a collaboration of Hollywood/Nollywood stars Billy Zane, Tom Sizemore, Vivica Fox, Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Mbong Amata, Hakeem Kae Kazim and several others.
Amata stated he decided to reshoot the film because:
“It had to be more current. It had to adhere strictly to what was going on right now – the Arab spring and all that… It was a huge challenge that the Arabs posed to the rest of the world, especially the people in the Niger delta. If they can look at their dictators and say, ‘No, we want a change’, there’s no reason why people in west Africa can’t stand up. And it’s beginning to happen.”
Amata recently took to his facebook page to reveal new poster art and announce that the reshot film will have its first viewing stateside at a special screening at the United Nations on September 26th. With an official theatrical release on December 7th in North America and Europe with and opening in Nigeria December 21st.
