According to reports, Hollywood actor, Danny Glover and Nigerian actress, Bimbo Akintola will be joining forces in an upcoming biopic about late Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, the medical officer who died from the ebola virus.
The movie which is likely to be completed before next year is a partnership between A Place in the Stars‘ Steve Gukas, Terra Kulture‘s Bolanle Austen Peters and Dotun Olakunrin.
It will be recalled that last year, a Liberian, Patrick Sawyer brought in the fatal disease into Nigeria, which in turn killed a number of Nigerians, including Dr. Adadevoh in the process.
Dr. Adadevoh is remembered for her gallant efforts at minimizing the spread of the virus.
