Movie lovers who must have been watching a lot of Hollywood zombie movies would have noticed that whenever there is a doomsday scenario in movies, it is always limited to the US. Africa, as big as it is, is usually not well represented in most Hollywood apocalypse movies.
It might be that the fictional doomsday or end of the world calamity does not reach Africa, or the producers just don’t think Africans can survive them. Thankfully, that’s about to change with this new movie slated to be released to the cinemas next year.
The Red is one of the three major motion pictures that are currently in works at Bird Guild Pictures. Also, the Bird Guild Pictures is a fully-fledged Hollywood studio that is based in Nigeria and the UK. The studio has also scheduled the movie to hit the cinema sometime in 2021.

Bird Guild Pictures, the first Hollywood studio in west Africa, has been making waves with its upcoming movies. Among these movies is the high budget fantasy flick titled “All is Calm Now.” Also, All is Calm Now has been nicknamed a Wakanda origin story. The fantastic movie was set in the actual city of ancient Benin. It also includes the long-awaited musical by L. S. Zeichner “Noir in 3 Mood.”
