US-based Nigerian actress, Folake Olowofoyeku is playing the role of Minerva and is contributing music to two soundtracks in the Universal Studios‘ and Roger Corman feature film Death Race 2050.
Death Race 2050 will be the direct sequel to the original Death Race 2000 released in 1975.
Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government that keeps the masses placated with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, where a motley assortment of drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for running down pedestrians and killing each other. The reigning champion and popular favorite is half-man, half-machine Frankenstein — but little does he know he’s taken on a rebel spy as his co-pilot.
The movie is directed by G.J Echternkamp. It also stars Manu Bennett and Malcolm McDowell and will be released on BluRay on January 17, 2017.
