Talking Drum Entertainment, a UK based distibution company specialising in black films, has set an August 2012 release date for the award winning romantic drama Tango with Me. The film will open across all the major UK and Ireland cinema chains in the first phase before proceeding on to other European countries.
Tango with Me which was the highest grossing film in Nigeria in 2011, stars Genevieve Nnaji and Joseph Benjamin as a couple facing a complex concoction of moral issues as they battle with trials and tribulations within their young marriage.
Mahmood Ali-Balogun produced and directed the film under his Brickwall Communications production company, in a statement he said:
“This is a positive development for African film in general and Nollywood in particular because a wider audience will experience our films and returns on film investments will improve greatly for the benefit of all stakeholders in our bid to take the industry to greater heights”.
