The sequel of award-winning Ghanaian movie, ‘Cheaters’, is set to hit the big screens with a cinema release in the month of August, Director Frank Rajah Arase announced yesterday.
“I decide to call it book2 and it is the sequel of the main story in book1. For now we are interested in following the same story as in book1. Perhaps we might have a change of mind in book4. B
ut until then you just watch out for something amazing from the sequel next month,” he promised movie enthusiasts.
The sequel will open for cinemas on August 8 at the Silverbird Cinema in Accra while book1 premieres in Nigeria on August 2.
The book1 had already premiered in Ghana on May 24 and it attracted an encouraging patronage at the Silverbird Cinema.
Two of Silverbird Cinema halls were used for the premiere. Each of the halls screened the movie twice and on each occasion, the halls were fully packed.
“It is encouraging that movie fans came out in their numbers to see my movie. It is an indication that Ghanaians still have an interest in our local movies and we must improve the frontiers to heighten that attention,” Frank Rajah said at that premiere.
Among the cast of book1 are Jackie Appiah, Chichi Neblett, Uche Iwuannyawu, Henry A. Asiedu, Adjetey Anang, and Omar Sheriff Captan.
It follows the stories of several young couples caught up in a web of love, lies and extramarital affairs. It throws more light on the assumption that marriage is the only war in which one sleeps with the enemy. If the couple is inseparable, it usually takes five people to separate it and ‘Cheaters’ reflects just that.
In this film love is portrayed as a mysterious adventure that takes one through many twists and turns. One adds a bit of infidelity to the mix and he or she has the perfect recipe for disaster. The story is never concluded unless movie enthusiasts see the sequel.
