It Appears Nollywood is drawing attention from prominent Hollywood actors as Genevieve Nnaji will be joined by accomplished co-stars Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the film adaptation of
Half Of A Yellow Sun’, a film adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s award winning novel. According to the source at leadership.ng
Nnaji will play the role of Ms Adebayo, another professor who develops a flirtatious
relationship with her colleague Mr Odenigbo (Ejiofor).
