It seems like Hollywood is finally taking white-washing outcries seriously as Action Film International announced that it will be producing an epic feature film in Egypt with an all Arab cast featuring Egyptian action super-star Yousef Mansour.
The project entitled “The Chosen Guard” is set to be a collaboration between an American production team with an Egyptian cast and crew that will begin shooting in both English and Arabic in April.
The film is set to star Yousef Mansour, who aided in writing the script, and will also be co-directing with American award-winning director and choreography, Courtney Miller, who has developed an impressive resume working with superstars Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, and Britney Spears.
According to the production company's press release, the film will be filled with insane car chases, large dance numbers, a big fat Ancient Egypt wedding and plenty of action. As for the film's synopsis, producers explain that The Chosen Guard will be a modern-day story about Sabaa, a man who is chosen by the ancient Pharaohs to defend the Golden Temple, the last unopened relic in Egyptian antiquity.
The project is incredibly pivotal to Egypt and its success could not only attract future tourists captivated by Ancient Egypt but also create new jobs and prove that filming in Egypt is an attractive authentic alternative to shooting epic films about Egypt in Morocco.
