Or at least that is what people are telling Ben Affleck. Affleck has always shown an interest in Congo; he started the Eastern Congo Initiative and has tried to talk up Hollywood on making a movie about the conflict in Eastern Congo. However, he is being shot down, after Hollywood executives are claiming no one would be interested in a movie about Africa.
It once again shows the mentality that a) Africa is one large unit instead of a unique continant with hundreds of different types of people, customs and lanuages. And b) that no one would care about the Congo.
Shame Hollywood. Read more about it here.
