Nelson Jombo, the brother of popular Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo, is out with a suspense-packed and thrilling movie titled Espionage. The movie, directed by Uzee Madubugwu, is an action packed spy flick complimented with top-notch acting from Alex Ekubo, Uru Eke, Kenneth Okoli, Laurel Je amongst others.
Jombo described the new movie as extremely challenging in terms of production and acting. But he was however of the opinion that it is a movie that will raise the bar because of the picture quality and the interpretation of roles.
Espionage is the story of Grace (Uru Eke), the best undercover agent at JFCC because she gets the mission done. Now she is going under cover again as a writer for two wealthy brothers (Alex Ekubo and Kenneth Okoli) involved in cyber-crime, money laundering and murder.
In the midst of the operation, she gets intimate with one of the brothers and this might turn out to be her greatest undoing. Will her feelings for one of the brothers cloud her judgement? Will Grace use this new found intimacy to get her mission accomplished? These are some of the questions that will be answered as the movie hits cinemas across the nation.
Madubugwu, the film’s director, noted that Espionage is more tasking than other works he has directed. “Excellence was my driving force when I was directing the film. I want people to watch a very well done movie, that’s why we paid attention to the smallest of details,” he said.
Meanwhile, Jombo’s professionalism and attention to detail has seen him become one of the breakout movie makers of the last three years. He is now a force to be reckoned with in the industry as he continues to expand and launch into new frontiers. The young filmmaker disclosed that learning filmmaking under his sister, he was made to understand that “you should strive to do better than your previous achievements and that is why I invested a lot into making this film and I am convinced it is going to do well”.
Other projects Nelson Jombo has worked on include movies like Stolen Lives, House Girl Lover, and my Rich Boyfriend among others.
