Actor Abraham Attah who gained international prominence after playing the lead role alongside Idris Elba in the movie “Beasts of No Nation has cautioned movie producers in Ghana not to approach him with movie roles if the film won’t be available on international platforms like Netflix.
During an interview with Abeiku Santana on UTV’s Popular “Atuu” show, the young actor was asked if he will feature in our local Ghanaian movies (Ghallywood & Kumawood), and in answer to this question, the “Beast of No Nation” actor said he will not hesitate to star in such movies but if only that particular movie will be available on Netflix.
“I haven’t gotten any script from any Ghanaian director but should they need my services to feature in a local movie, that movie should have a future and should be on an international platform like netflix. I have a manager in Ghana and in USA who send me scripts if only the movie is good.” Abraham Attah said.
The young actor also disclosed that most of the movies here have no future and it’s because they are not featured on Netflix, subscription-based streaming services where movies are stored for online streaming of a film library.
“If the script is sent to me and it has a future I will feature in it.”
The award-winning actor has featured in Hollywood movies like “Beast of No Nation”, “Spiderman Homecoming” and “Out Of The Village” which can all be found on Netflix. So, it’s not surprising that the promising Ghanaian actor is using Netflix as a yardstick to decide on the kind of movies he’ll desire to star in.
