BEVERLY HILLS, April 19, (THEWILL) – Nigerian business magnate and former senator, Ben Bruce, is set to take the Nigeria movie industry to the next level with his most recent collaboration with Hollywood legend, Wesley Snipes. This was disclosed in a series of tweets by the former senator who visited Los Angeles days back where he sealed a partnership with Wesley Snipes.
According to him, the partnership between the two would inspire the production of great movies and would birth great synergy between Hollywood and Nollywood. In 2019, shortly after the end of his tenure in the 8th Senate, Bruce had revealed that he will return to his roots in entertainment with movie making. He announced the collaborative expansion of Silverbird Group ventures in association with his Dream Magic Studios, a production studio complex and full-service pre and post-production house, which he founded in 2013 and located in Los Angeles, California.
He also announced that he had assembled a dream team to bridge the gap between the burgeoning entertainment culture of the African Diaspora and Hollywood entertainment. He added that a veteran Hollywood studio executive, Davina Douthard, will take the helm of the upcoming film while Dream Magic Studios operations will be overseen by his son and company Vice President, Jonathan Murray-Bruce.
This is not the first-time entertainers would be making the industry proud by collaborating with Hollywood. The likes of Omotola Jalade, Genevieve Nnaji, Taiwo Ajayi Lycett, Jim Iyke, Stephanie Okereke Linus, have all featured in Hollywood movies and series.
