The Government of Ghana has granted permission to the New York-based Red Crown Productions and its local affiliation, Deal Real Productions Limited, to shoot a feature film in Ghana from May 16 – July 1 in the Eastern and Western Regions.
A Military statement signed by Major Evelyn Asamoah, Deputy Director Information and Press Relations, Ghana Armed Forces and copied to the GNA in Accra said the filming will involve movement of some military equipment and personnel from Accra to Koforidua where a major part of the film will be shot.
“The general public is therefore urged not to panic at the site of the movement of military personnel and equipment to Koforidua within the stated period of the film shooting,” the statement stated.
According to the statement, the film entitled “Beasts of no Nation” is set on the civil war in Liberia in the 1990s.
