UK-based Talking Drum Entertainment, dedicated to the development and distribution of black film and TV content, has announced via press release that it will release the award-winning romantic comedy Flower Girl, across UK cinemas this October, 2013.
Directed by Michelle Bello, and starring Dami Adegbite, Chris Attoh and Chucks Chukwujekwu, Flower Girl revolves around Kemi (Adegbite) a young impressionable lady who is dying to get married and Umar (Attoh) a corporate go-getter who is striving to get ahead in his career. When their relationship hits troubled waters, Kemi seeks the help of movie superstar Tunde (Chukwujekwu) and they hatch a plan to get Kemi what she wants – but the plan doesn’t quite work out as they anticipate and soon they realize why people say love is a funny thing.
The film, which has already been released in Nigeria and Ghana to much success, is said to have gone through a complete re-edit with the help of Mahmood Ali-Balogun (Tango with Me) and according to director Bello, international audiences will be in for an even stronger experience with this new cut.
Flower Girl will be released cross all the major UK exhibition chains: Odeon, Vue, Cineworld as well as independent cinemas.
