Mafia, Africano, Taimour w Shafika, A’an El E’eshk Wel Hawa, and many more. Those are all movies, in the early 2000s, where we enjoyed watching our all-time favourite on-screen duo. For years, Mona Zaki and Ahmed El Sakka have kicked a**es with their astonishing performances and incredible chemistry. Now we’re super glad that the pair are reuniting in one more film, titled El A’ankaboot (The Spider).
The genre of the long-awaited film is expected to be action... Duh! It’s El Sakka’s after all; it wouldn’t be his without the suspense factor and the car chase scenes. But with Zaki in the picture, could there be some romance involved? *FINGERS CROSSED*
El Sakka already started shooting his scenes before Eid Al Adha. Filming is expected to resume in a few days as the rest of the cast joins. Other than Zaki, the co-stars so far are Dhafer L’Abidine, Sherine Reda, Mohamed Lotfy, and Ahmed Fouad Selim. It’s also worth mentioning that El A’ankaboot is written by Mohamed Nayer, and directed by Ahmed Nader Galal.
This is not the power duo’s first comeback though. El Sakka and Zaki were back three years ago when they starred together in Men 30 Sana, alongside a star-studded cast that included Sherif Monir, Mervat Amin, Nour, and more.
On a scale from 1 to El Sakka’s famed waterfall jump in Africano, how excited are you?
