Nigeria’s screen diva, Genevieve Nnaji is starring in a movie, “Farming” alongside Hollywood actors Kate Beckinsale, Damon Idris, and Gugu Mmbatha-Raw.



The film which is being shot in the U.K. and Nigeria started production in August and is being directed by Nigerian-British writer and director, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

The film is based on Adewale’s autobiographical story, “Farming.” Genevieve, who shared few pictures of herself on set on her Instagram is popular for classic movies including, “Ije” and “Keeping Faith”.

The Nollywood veteran recently made her directorial debut with her upcoming movie, "Lion Heart". The script was developed at the Sundance Film Institute and chronicles his own coming-of-age story growing up fostered by a white working-class family in the U.K.

In the film, the lead character is sent to the U.K. by his parents in hopes of achieving a better life. Instead, he becomes the feared leader of a white skinhead gang in 1980s England. When all seems lost and he spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (played by Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption.

Genevieve won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 2005, making her the first actress to win the award.

She has starred in over 80 movies and is considered to be one of the best paid actresses in Nollywood.
