Amr Waked: a celebrity cast out
A leading man without a cast: Amr Waked is the only actor to have landed a role in new movie 'Al Manfi'
Egyptian actor Amr Waked must be wondering if it's something he said as he struggles to find people to work with.
Waked recently announced his upcoming role in new movie 'Al Manfi' (The Cast Out). But, with just days to go until filming begins, he has revealed he has no supporting cast. As the only actor to be chosen for the movie so far, Waked might have a challenging few weeks ahead of him if the films producers can't find some suitable co-stars.
The star isn't worried though - he says he is eager to start work on the film, which is set in the 1980s in the suburbs of Egypt.
But this isn't the only place that Waked has been left out in the cold.
He is still waiting for a production company to jointly produce his upcoming film “Bi Ay Ard Tamoot” (In Which Land will you Die) with the Ministry of Culture. The Ministry is unable to fund the film without a partner, leaving Waked, once again, in search of some support.
