Lagoonie Film Production has announced its cooperation with Art Factory for Entertainment and Production to remake the classic film Anf w Thalath Oyoun (A Nose and Three Eyes), based on great Egyptian author Ihsan Abdel Quddous’ masterpiece.

In his interview on NRJ Radio's program Lail Dakhly, Tamer Habib said, “I will rewrite the film in a completely different style than the original film and I will present some events from a new perspective. This novel is very dear to my heart as it’s the first novel I’ve ever read, besides, Ihsan Abdel Quddous is among the few Egyptian writers whose novels were adapted into films and TV series for the smoothness and simplicity of his writing style and the strong dramatic elements in his writings.”

Facing difficult confrontations, these relationships create many struggles that are not easy to overcome. The novel was adapted into a film by director Hussein Kamal in 1972, starring Mahmoud Yassine, Magdah, Naglaa Fathi, and Mervat Amin.
