Teenage Ghanaian actor Abraham Attah has been cast a the lead character for a Nollywood International cinema project titled Ade's Journey.

Budgeted at $5m the producers have also cast several African actors alongside the young multi-award winning movie star including Isaach de Bankole (Casino Royale, Black Panther) and Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Hotel Rwanda, Black Sails) confirmed as support.

British Nigerian Hollywood actors Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Suicide Squad), Nonso Anozie and Wunmi Mosaku are favoured for other supporting roles with a major British actor in consideration for a key cameo role.

According to the Voice Online, Ade's Journey is a superbly crafted rites of passage story written by top screenwriter/producer Brendan Foley (Johnny Was, The Riddle) set against a backdrop of migration, human trafficking and football.

Based on true events and hugely topical its creatively pitched in the genre of Slumdog Millionaire and Billy Elliot and is a touching story about a West African boy’s perilous 6000 mile walk from Africa to Europe along the migrant route in search of soccer stardom at a top Premiership football club.

With a compelling story set across West and North Africa, Italy, France and UK the project already has the support of FIFA, the Premier League, UNICEF and UNHCR due to the child migration and football themes in the picture.

Obi Emelonye is attached to direct with Screen Nation Pictures and The Nollywood Factory producing alongside veteran producer Bob Mahoney (Critical Assignment) of Devonshire Productions. The project benefits from an exclusive Exec Producer production pact with Peter Macdonald (Harry Potter, Bourne Ultimatum, X Men) the hugely respected and renowned veteran British Director/Producer/DoP.

Abraham Attah, 16, (Beasts of No Nation, Spiderman: Homecoming) is a child actor who got his big break while starring as ‘Agu’ in the hit movie Beast of no Nations.

He is also an ambassador for the Ghanaian government’s flagship programme, Free Senior High School.
