There are indications that the producers of Oasis, Zik Zulu Films, in conjunction with The Incubator, have concluded plans to adapted the popular TV series into a screenplay. CEO of Zik Zulu Films, Mr. Zik Zulu Okafor, dropped this hint in a recent chat with HVP. Zik-Zulu Okafor said they are currently having a series of script conferences prior to adapting the sitcom into a screenplay. “We hope to conclude the screenplay by May, and once we are through, we shall organize a press conference to announce the coming of Oasis movie,” the former AMP president added. Describing Oasis as an inspirational TV series, Okafor further disclosed it would be a star-studded movie, starring the likes of Richard Mofe Damijo, RMD, Genevieve Nnaji, Monalisa China, and Beverly Naya among others. It also plans to premiere in London, America and South Africa. “Between June and August, we will be concluding the production and getting ready to premiere the movie. The story would remain same, but the only difference is that what will run for almost 18 months will now come into a ninety minutes movies. This time, it will be more intense, more glamorous with star- actors re-enacting the series. We are indeed moving from TV series into a big-budget movie,” Okafor further stated. Okafor named Pastor Iluyomade of the City of David church as the Executive Producer of the movie, saying “Oasis will be a major movie for me.” The 30-episode tele-novella, which is currently into the seven weeks of its second quarter, started airing from October, 2014. As a sequel to the now rested sitcom, Heaven’s Gate, Oasis is featuring the likes of Beverly Naya, Moet Abebe, Tope Tedela, Segun Arinze, Monalisa Chinda, David Nnaji, Ifeanyi Williams, Mary-Jane Ugbaja, and Zik Zulu Okafor amongst others. 7 0 1 0
