Are you ready for the news?
Mohammed Assaf is... finally taking up acting! Yep, the Palestinian superstar has long insisted that he wants to focus on his successful singing career, but looks like a beautifully-written script has changed his mind!
What makes this news better (if that's even possible) is that Egyptian veteran actor Nour el Sherif will be starring alongside Assaf in the much-anticipated TV drama.
Rumor has it that Lebanese actress Carmen Labbas might be joining the A-list cast as well, according to Sotor news.
The Palestinian production is entitled "Janna Wa Nar" (Heaven and Hell), which is based on a novel by Palestinian writer and novelist Yahya Yakhlif.
The plot revolves around Najeeb, a Palestinian man who sneaks into Palestine because he cannot find his identity elsewhere. He then begins to help Arab guerrillas with smuggling weapons across the Israeli/Palestinian borders, before being suddenly struck by an illness.
"Heaven and Hell" will be directed by Tareq Khalaf and produced by Beams Pro.
