Nour is also preparing to direct the new film “Al Iskandarani”, which is written by Osama Anwar Okasha. The actor will also be playing the leading role as the most popular fish seller in Alexandria. Nour has nominated Egyptian actress Summaya Al Khashab for the leading female role. Filming of the scenes are to begin in the very near future in the city of Alexandria.
