One of Sierra Leone’s biggest international Film Producers Ambassador Collins Archie-Pearce, who is based in the UK, is yet to arrive in Sierra Leone to shoot a Sierra Leonean blockbuster film, titled “Unpredictable Enemies”, aiming to be aired on Netflix platform. If successful, a Sierra Leonean film would now be on the highest international platform in the world and would be viewed by millions of people across the globe who don’t know about Sierra Leone and it’s beautiful landmarks/culture.
Ambassador Collins Archie-Pearce emphasised that, it has always been his intention ever since he was awarded “Diaspora Movie Ambassador“ for Sierra Leonean films in the UK in 2015, to put his beloved country on the map, as the world doesn’t know us in terms of entertainment (especially film making) and also to let the world see the beauty of Mama Salone.
He decided to form a WhatsApp group in relation to the project, thereby including over 80 Sierra Leonean actors across the country in the group, aiming to give all of them a roles in the aforementioned film. He stated that this would not only give them jobs, but would also give them international recognition and an opportunity to showcase their individual talents outside the shores of Sierra Leone.
In order for the film to gain easy access to the Netflix platform, he was strongly advised to include at least one established “A” class Nollywood/Nigerian actor in the film amongst other criteria such as using Netflix recommended camera(s), good storyline and proper sound system.
He is pleased to inform Sierra Leoneans that he has contracted one of the biggest Nollywood actors to feature in the film by the name of Ken Erics, who should be arriving in Sierra Leone by the end of this month. Ambassador Collins Archie-Pearce should be arriving in Sierra Leone on the 22nd of this month and intends to start production immediately after.
