Following the success of “The Blue Elephant” (released in 2014) and “Welad Rizk” (released in 2015), directors Marwan Hamed and Tareq El Eryan have pleased fans with the decision to film a sequel to their movies.

The cast of Welad Rizk, Mohamed Mamdouh, Ahmed Ezz, Amr Youssef, Ahmed Fishawy, Ahmed Dawood and Karim Kassim confirmed on Instagram that they will all be returning to part two of the movie. The crew has already begun filming the action comedy, with the release date ‘coming soon in 2019’.

Meanwhile, part two of The Blue Elephant, a horror film adapted from the Arabic novel by the famous Egyptian writer Ahmed Mourad, promises to be even more thrilling than part one and hopes to keep fans on the edge of their seat. Egyptian stars Karim Abdel Aziz and Nelly Karim will be returning to the cast, but this time with Tunisian star Hend Sabri, who will surely have an interesting role to play. Filming is due to start in December.
