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.
