Egyptian director Radwan Al Kashef has agreed with the writer Mohammed Al Bisati to transfer his novel Layali Ukhra (Other Nights) into a film costarring Sharihan, according to the daily Al Raya.  

The novel depicts the story of an Egyptian woman who narrates the details of one of her days through which she restores her past and sheds light on the political, economic and cultural life in Egypt from the 50s till the present. 

Layali Ukhra is Bisati’s third novel which has been transferred into a cinematic version. The film Al Sharaf (Honor) by Mohammed Shaaban was based on Besati’s novel Buyout Waraa Al Ashgar (Houses Behind the Trees). Also, the scenarist Alaa Azzam transferred Bisati’s novel Ibn Mout (Son of Death) into a scenario for the new film Kharif Ibn Adam (Human being’s Autumn) which the director Mohammed Al Qalyoubi is currently filming.
