Ahmed Malek to Star in New Canadian Film

Published

on

Seems like Ahmad Malek’s acting career is booming at the moment, and we couldn’t have been happier for him. The young actor just signed for the lead role in Canadian director Patricia Chica’s (also known as Chicatronica) next film Montreal Girls.

At only 22, the actor is receiving international recognition, partly due to his role in Amr Salama’s most recent film Al Sheikh Jackson and his role in Mohamad Diab’s Eshtebak in 2016. It’s definitely hard to dismiss a talent so striking like that of Malek’s.

According to Screen Daily, Malek “will play an Egyptian student who heads to Montreal on a medical school scholarship. Once there, he hooks up with a wild cousin who introduces him to the Canadian city’s vibrant underground subcultures and thrilling nightlife. This exciting new world inspires Basil’s innate desire to become a poet and hurls him into a tumultuous relationship with three young women who shatter his perceptions and reveal to him his destiny.” We know we can’t wait! 

Director Patricia Chica herself revealed that she spent a whole year doing nothing but searching for the perfect actor for the role until she found Malek, and lucky for us, we couldn’t be more certain that he would succeed at pulling this off. 

Montreal Girls will be Chica’s first feature film after apparently, more than 20 triumphant shorts, including The Morning After (2017) & Ceramic Tango (2013).

The preacher also helped produce big projects like the 2016 film “Eshtebak” and this year’s TV series “Al Seham Al Mareqa”.

No further statements were made on the matter, although some people are giving themselves the full rights to criticize and ridicule the marriage. And to all of you nosy fellas, we say:
