Jim Iyke dropped from lead role in Kenyan movie

27 May 2014, 15:55

Nairobi - Jim Iyke won't get the chance to play the lead role in a Kenyan movie due to budget cuts by the production team.

This was revealed at the on-going Broadcasting, Film and Music Africa conference where Serah Mwhihaki, a panellist, was responding to questions fielded by delegates.

Mwihaki is the screen writer for 'My Life in Crime', a movie adapted from a book of the same title.

She let slip that Iyke may have been dropped from the production due to 'budget slashes.'

Iyke was cast as John Kiriamiti, a hard core criminal who is now reformed. The movie was set to begin shooting later this year.
