*Here’s an update for all you Kimberly Elise fans. The actress is starring in a Nollywood production called “Ties That Bind.”
If you’re thinking we somehow managed to spell Hollywood with an N, you’re wrong. Nollywood is the nick name for the Nigerian/African film industry.
Shadowandact.com is reporting that “Ties That Bind,” which is currently shooting in Ghana, is a multimillion dollar film production directed by Ghanaian director Lila Djansi and also stars Ghanaian actress Ama K. Abebrese.
Elise’s role in the film sounds like it’s in the territory of the one she portrayed in Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls.”
“Bind” is the story of three women who are bound together by one common tragedy-the loss of a child. The matriarchal trio meets in a small village and journey together to “redemption, love, life and forgiveness” while renovating a dilapidated clinic.
The film’s release date hasn’t been announced.
