Aladdin's star, Egyptian-Canadian actor Mena Massoud, revealed the poster of Fe Ez Al-Dohr (In Broad Daylight) on his Instagram earlier this week.
"Check out the teaser poster for In Broad Daylight. It's been a dream of mine to head back to Egypt and act with some of the most talented artists in the world. Honoured to be a part of this [film]," Massoud commented in his post.
Directed by Morcos Adel, with a script by Karim Sorour, the film will be Massoud's first appearance in an Egyptian production.
It will also be an opportunity for Massoud to act in Arabic, specifically Egyptian dialect. During a conference, Massoud expressed that he is already working on improving his Arabic language as to be fully ready for the role.
In Fe Ez Al-Dohr, Massoud will portray Hamza, an international criminal who leaves Egypt to live abroad and returns to carry out some tasks in Egypt. His accomplice in crime in Egypt is Hana El-Zahed, who is also starring in the film.
Producers are yet to reveal the details about the new film's release date.
