Ace filmmaker and comedy entrepreneur, Opa Williams is set to release another blockbuster titled ‘The Three Wise Men’.
The movie is the latest in a series of movies funded by Bank Of Industry (BOI) under its N1.0billion loan scheme. The film currently being shot in Parafa, Ikorodu, an outskirt of Lagos, parades veteran actors such as Richard Mofe Damijo, Zack Orji, Victor Olaotan, Tina Mba and Ebele Okaro.
Directed by Patience Oghre Imobhio, The Three Wise Men, according to Williams, is a Dramatic comedy that humorously presents the follies of three aged men in their mid/late 60’s who struggle to re-live their lost youth.
“After many years of service in different government parastatals the three aged men are retired and they all settled in a suburb to enjoy their retirement benefits. How they decide to spend this retirement money remains highly humorous and dramatic.
The pack is led by Irikefe (Richard Mofe Damijo) 64, a divorcee with three failed marriages after five children and refuses to re-marry. Irikefe decides to live alone as his covetous children are now grown and also live on their own but patiently waiting for him to die so they can swoop on whatever is left of him. Irikefe is aware of his children’s intentions and wants to make sure he exhausts every savings of his, before death. Upon his retirement he refurbishes his flat, buys a laptop, a nice spot car supposedly meant for a young-man, and goes for shopping, for jean, T-shirt, Papa’s Cap, sneakers and everything a young-man could dream of.
The three men become an item, as Irikefe introduces them to his world of fun, from tracking girls on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, joy riding and picking the finest of young girls home for a nice time, to clubbing. Irikefe is the yippee-happy-go-old guy man, who sags and wears tattoos. He loves snapping selfies and posting them on his social media pages.”
