Old Films Productions Director, Peter Orgnah Sedufia has bemoaned the high charges being demanded by some actors and actresses in the movie industry before accepting to star in movies.
The Director of “Keteke” which featured the likes of Adjetey Anang and Lydia indicated that the movie industry was not dying like many industry players wanted the general public to believe.
He indicated that it was the high fees of some actors and actresses that was stalling progress in the budding Ghanaian movie industry.
In a passionate appeal on his Facebook page, the Director said that some movie stars charged ‘outrageously’ just because they had become famous. He added that the Ghanaian movie industry could not be compared to that of Hollywood which was highly lucrative when one attained stardom status.
He continued to say that some movie-makers were in the habit of lashing out at the movie industry on social media for stifling growth but said the blame was supposed to be put on the movie stars who charged very high fees.
He said some producers were not shooting some movies due to their inability to come to financial agreement with certain actors and actress.
He however sent a word of caution to some movie stars and indicated that other budding performers were being given the chance to rise to the top and in the event of this happening, they were going to take all the roles that were available, eventually killing the career of all high-charging actors and actresses.
