Nigerian production company Play Network Studios has acquired the intellectual property rights to remake Diamond Ring, the classic Nollywood movie from 1998.
The thriller, directed by Tade Ogidan, tells the story of a young, spoiled child who is sent to university by his parents and later a gang while on campus. It stars Richard Mofe Damijo, Teju Babyface, Sola Sobowale and Bukky Ajayi.
“We’ve just acquired the intellectual property rights to this Nollywood classic, and we can’t be happier. This would be a remake and not a sequel. This might probably be the last movie under the Play Network Nostalgic collection. Coming soon to your screens,” said Charles Okpaleke, CEO of Play Network Africa, parent company of Play Network Studios.
The production company was also behind Nigerian movies such as Living in Bondage: Breaking Free (2019), which was exec produced by Okpaleke, as well as Nollywood remakes Rattlesnake: The Ahanna Story and Nneka The Pretty Serpent.
