Mohamed Sadek’s ‘Hepta: The Last Lecture’ is set to film in Cairo this month with a talented team of creatives, from the director to the cast, including Maged El Kedwany.
Following in the footsteps of literary greats like Alaa Al Aswany’s The Yacoubian Building and, more recently, Ahmed Mourad’s El Feel El Azraq, Mohamed Sadek’s 2014 Book of the Year, Hepta: The Last Lecture, is being adapted into film by the talented Hadi el Bagoury, and is set to film in Cairo this month. The Egyptian romantic drama is set to star the esteemed Maged El Kedwany, as well as Yasmin Raeis, Ahmed Malek, and Ahmed Dawood.
Hepta intertwines the narratives of four couples in different stages of their relationships, as told by a famous psychiatrist in a lecture at Cairo University on his theory of the seven stages necessary to experience true love – hence the title, Hepta, which is Greek for the number seven. With his steadily rising success – paired of course with his brilliantly creative talent – we are excited to see how El Kedwany is cast and how he chooses to portray his character’s unique elements.
El Bagoury is producing the film in collaboration with Producers, Mohamed Hefzy’s Film Clinic, and another anticipated production company.
