You know what, it took 3 years to perfect the script. For the first time in my acting career, I did one scene for a whole night. This movie is something else."

In 2015, it was announced that a sequel to the 1992 classic Nollywood movie, "Living in Bondage" was in the works.

The sequel, which will also mark the official directorial debut of veteran actor Ramsey Nouah, is a follow-up to the 1992 cult drama thriller of the same name.

Many argue that "Living In Bondage" kicked off the movie industry 'Nollywood' and the home video market boom in the 90s.


So for "Living in Bondage: Breaking Free," it was very important to Nouah that the sequel appeals to the demography of those who saw the original movie and those who didn't.

"When we wrote the story, we realized that it was lopsided. We were trying to catch the demography of today who go to the cinema [and those who] have not seen the original movie. So we were trying to kind of blend it," Ramsey Nouah told Pulse Nigeria during an interview.

Trying to use the original to create the same feel for the sequel was not an easy task. "That's why it took so long," Nouah said about the sequel which was first announced in 2015 after Nouah and his entrepreneur friend, Charles Okpaleke, acquired the license to write from Kenneth Nnebue, who helmed the 1992 film.


Cast and crew of "Living in Bondage" sequel
The original starred household names like Kenneth Okonkwo as Andy, Nnenna Nwabueze as Merit, Francis Agu as Ichie Million, Bob Manuel Udokwu as Mike, Ngozi Nwosu as Ego, Kanayo O. Kanayo as Chief Omego, Rita Nzelu as Tina, Ngozi Nwaneto as Caro, Jennifer Okere as Chinyere, among others.

It has been confirmed that Kenneth Okwonkwo, Bob-Manuel Udokwu and Kanayo O. Kanayo would return for the sequel.

New additions include Ramsey Nouah, who would be taking up a villainous role. There's also Enyinna Nwigwe in an unknown role.
