Netflix Wants Me To Produce ‘Anikulapo’ Series – Kunle Afolayan

Kunle Afolayan has revealed that the popular movie streaming platform, Netflix, is urging him to produce a series from his latest successful movie, Anikulapo.

He stated that he initially wanted to make the movie a series, but Netflix told him to make a movie first, and if it became a success, a series would be developed.

Afolayan made this known in an interview with Guardian UK published on Friday.

The filmmaker said, “I’ve been working on Aníkúlápó for six years. Originally, I wanted to make a series, but I shopped it and kept telling people that this movie would be bigger than Game of Thrones.

“Eventually, Netflix told me to make a movie first since I believed in the project that much, and if it became a success, we’d develop a series.”

‘Anikulapo’, set in the 17th century ancient Oyo kingdom, premiered on Netflix on September 30, 2022.

A week after its premiere, the movie became the most-watched non-English film on Netflix, with a cumulative 8.7m streaming hours.
