Amr Waked (Lucy) is taking the bull by the horns.
The Egyptian actor is set to produced – and, perhaps, star in? – an adaptation of The Marriott Cell, Mohamed Fahey’s upcoming powerful account of the three innocent Al Jazeera journalists who were imprisoned for 400 days in Egypt’s Scorpion prison. (Fahmy was one of the three journalists in question.)
Paul Greengrass is also on board the silver-screen project.
The Marriott Cell is due to be published this fall.
