Joy Odiete, chief executive officer of Blue Pictures Entertainment and producer of the highly-anticipated action-comedy film, ‘Money Miss Road’, scheduled for global theatrical release on July 22, 2022, has explained the reason behind assembling the hugely talented cast and crew members who worked tirelessly to bring the film to reality.

During a chat, Odiete, who is Nigeria’s only female leading a global film distribution company, explained that the film was conceived to explore a rare genre that is lacking in the Nigerian cinema ecosystem. She says: “Yes, ‘Money Miss Road’ is out in cinemas on the 22nd of July. It is an action-comedy film; a combination rarely seen in Nigerian cinemas as seen from the trajectory and history of the box office. ‘
