If news filtering out of Nollywood is anything to go by, then we should be expecting Super Eagles and Arsenal football club player, Alex Iwobi, to star in a yet to be released Nollywood movie. The arsenal forward is said to have been taking acting classes to properly prepare him for his role in the movie.
Many of his football fans are, however, concerned that the movie role may adversely affect his game during the season, but sources within the movie industry claim that the filming for the movie ended weeks ago and the project is in the advanced stages of post-production
While there are still sketchy details about the movie, rumour has it that the action flick will find Alex Iwobi taking on the role of a heroic character, with Alex Iwobi said to be performing some of his own stunts, while others are done by a stunt double
Main photography is said to have ended as the movie’s first trailer is set to be released to the public soon. This would be Iwobi’s very first acting role in a major production.
Alex Iwobi is the nephew of former Nigerian professional footballer, Jay-Jay Okocha.
