Director Shareef Arafa and Egyptian comedian actor Ahmad Hilmi have decided to postpone the new film “ZX-Large” to an undetermined time. Shareef and Ahmad want to wait until conditions in Egypt are more stable and life returns to normal.
Shareef had agreed on the details of the film with Ahmad at the beginning of the current year and before Egypt’s January 25 Revolution that overthrew the government of Husni Mubarak. The break of the revolution halted all preparations and nominations for the film.
The story of the film revolves around about a lazy young man that is overweight and faces a number of humorous circumstances. Once Arafa resumes work on the film, he will seek the help of professional makeup artists to turn Ahmad into an overweight man.
