Egyptian actress Amina Khalil is no longer involved in actor Mohamed Emam's remake of the 1991 cult film "Shams elzanaty", which starred his father, prominent Egyptian actor, “El Zaeem” Adel Imam.

Asmaa Galal has been tapped as her replacement after the latter had to part ways with the film due to being busy with other projects.

Set during WW2, "Shams elzanaty" follows an oasis village being attacked frequently by a group of robbers, led by a marshal. The village's old man Sheikh Othman travels to Cairo, Egypt, to buy weapons and men, Shams Elzanaty and his fellows, to fight back.

It also included Mahmoud Hemeida, Sawsan Badr, Mahmoud El Gendy, Mustafa Metwalli, Abdullah Mahmoud, Ahmad Maher, Ibrahim Nasr, Roshdy El Mahdy, Aly Abdel Raheem, Noha El Amroussy, Saeed Tarabeek, and more.

The remake serves as a follow-up to the original film and will be the biggest film in the history of Arab cinema.

The cast also includes Amr Abdul Gelil, Ahmed Khaled Saleh, Ahmed Dash, Mostafa Gharieb, and more.

It is scripted by Mohamed El Dabbah, directed by Amr Salama, and produced by Aka Production Company.
