Nigerian producer-director-actor, Kunle Afolayan is currently in production on his next film, titled October 1.

Produced by his Golden Effects production company, on a reported $2 million budget, the film is set in 1960, against the backdrop of Nigeria's independence, and is said to be a serial killer movie. 

Written by Tunde Babalola, here's how it's describes it:

... a psychological thriller detailing the activities of a northern police detective, Dan Waziri who was posted to the western region to unravel the mystery behind a series of female murders in the community. He soon discovers that the prime suspect is Aderopo, the prince of the community. Waziri, however does not have plenty of time as he is expected to bring the Prince to book before the Nigerian flag is raised on October 1.

October 1, stars Sadiq DabaKehinde BankoleDavid BailieKayode OlaiyaNick RhysFabian Lojede, and Demola Adedoyin.

Character posters for each of the film's starring cast as the characters they play, have surfaced and are all embedded below, along with the film's poster.

Afolayan's last film, the romantic-comedy Phone Swap, a film we covered, screened internationally, in 2012.

And the film he made before that, the thriller, Araromire (The Figurine), is now available for streaming on line on Ndani.TV, which is, in short, an online video streaming website that features primarily Nollywood cinema - or what the founders call "the best of New Nollywood as well as the classics."
