Written by Chinaza Onuzo, The Set Up is a riveting thriller of grit, deceit and survival.

Speaking on the movie, co-founder, Inkblot Productions, Zulu Oyibo, said, “it is great to work with people who share in your vision. We have collaborated with FilmOne on groundbreaking projects such as, the Wedding Party series and My Wife and I, and last year, we did the same with Anakle on the breathtaking Up North. These collaborations have proven to be successful and we are more than happy to do it again, especially on a movie like The Set Up. This is a movie that speaks brilliance, hard work and creativity.”
The Managing Director of FilmOne Distribution and Production, Moses Babatope, said, “working with Inkblot Productions has always been a delight. They never fall short on quality and storyline. Execution is always impeccable and that goes in line with what we are about, so we are happy to do this again.”
CEO of Anakle Films, Editi Effiong, said, “after the success of Up North, we are excited to be working with Inkblot Productions again. This is one project I am looking forward to, and I really cannot wait for everyone to see this, come August 9, 2019.”
