Tayem Hassan joins King Tut
The production company ‘King Tut’ has signed a contract with three prominent actors from Egypt and Syria to manage and produce their upcoming television dramas. The company signed with Syrian actor Tayem Hassan and Egyptian actors Mustafa Shabaan and Amro Saed and is currently preparing for a number of television dramas the actors will take part in to be aired during the Ramadan season of 2012.
According to the London based Elaph, Tayem and Amro have not yet decided on any television dramas, whereas Mustafa has given his initial approval to star in the new drama “Al Ustoorah” (The Legend). The company has set a budget of 20 to 25 million Egyptian pounds for “Al Ustoorah” out of which 5 million will be Mustafa’s wage. Mustafa is currently holding work sessions with the makers of the drama to select the remaining cast.
The new contracts for the company come at a time when two of its valuable actors signed with other companies. The first actor that left the company is prominent Egyptian actor Yahya Al Fakharani, who signed with the ‘Al Jabiri’ production company, and the second artist that left is Egyptian actress Ghada Abd Al Razik.
Rumors have it that prominent Egyptian actor Nour El Shareef may leave the company as well and sign with a different one.
