Yesterday, Monday, the Egyptian artist, Mohy Ismail, revealed new developments regarding his cinematic project to embody the late Libyan president, Muammar Gaddafi, in a movie.
He said in a symposium honoring him at the tenth session of the Luxor Festival of African Cinema, that this film is supposed to come to light during the current year, produced by an English company.
He revealed that the American actor, George Clooney, and a major international star are candidates for his participation in this movie.
Mohi Ismail explained that Muammar Gaddafi’s film has been writing for 18 years, and the idea of presenting it came to him when he was visiting the late writer, with Saad Eddin Wahba, who made him meet the late Libyan leader.
Ismail continued, “Wahba told me that I would embody the character of Gaddafi in a film, and I went to the Libyan president and met him.”
The Egyptian actor pointed out that Moataz, Gaddafi’s son, who was killed next to him, was one of his close friends, and he supported him with 12 books about his father in order to present the film.
It is noteworthy that Mohi Ismail’s most famous films include: “Enemy Brothers” with Mervat Amin, “Bir al-Harman”, “Khali Balak from Zuzu” with Suad Hosni, and “Had Sami Hajjah” with Ramez Jalal.
