I hope both adaptations will be faithful to the source materials. We don't want another 'Half of the Yellow Sun' situation.

They may stay true to the source materials but even that may not be good enough.

Books take you into the mind of the characters and tell it all but films skip some details and rely on lots of subtleties cos of their limited time.

Also, there are nuances to writing, insights to the characters and the plot that often don’t translate to film.

Just don't get your hopes too high for the movie adaptation of these books.

By the way, I thought Half of a Yellow Sun was a poor novel and the movie was worse.

I understand and I hope they don't deviate too much from the source.

Oh well, we'll have to wait and see, won't we?

It's a great deal for Mo Abudu, Wole Soyinka and Lola Shoneyin. Not so much for Nollywood.

Netflix will probably do a few scenery shooting in Nigeria, then promptly move the development, pre-production, production, and post-production to some studio in England. Furthermore, due to studio location, Netflix will probably end up casting 95% non-Nigerian actors to play Nigerian characters.

I just hope we get to see fresh casts, instead of her regulars.

Production should be entirely local, including the cast and all. It will also put out more Nigerian content to the world. It's a good deal for Nollywood.

Just last month, a South African original series was released and it was No. 1 in many countries. Now many people have developed an interest for S.A movies. They have a horror movie coming up soon and the anticipation is high because of the success of that series.

You're overlooking one very important aspect of filmmaking... film studio facility.

I don't think Nollywood has a state-of-the-art movie studio. I really don't believe it's conceivable to shoot an expensive Netflix-funded film with all the trappings of 21 century filmmaking, in Nigeria. Perhaps, scenery photography will take place locally, but everything else will be moved to a country with a modern, and fully equipped film studio facility.

^^ Unless you want the usually unappealing cinematography synonymous with Nollywood.

Aaah, to type long post dey tire me these days and e don tey wey I read the book. undecided

Modified: Perhaps poor is not the right word. I searched my previous posts in this forum and I came across the comment I made 8 years ago when I read the novel. The word I used then was "overrated"

I might expatiate later why I think it's overrated.
