The first look at Egyptian stars Tarek Lotfy and Ahmed El Fishawy's film "Elsystm" (The System) has been revealed.

Nesreen Tafesh, Passant Shawky, and Mais Hamdan will also star.

 The film is scripted by Ahmed Mustafa, directed by Ahmed El Bendary, and produced by Run Films and Best Media Production.

The project marks Lotfy's comeback to the big screen after four years of absence. He made his last onscreen performance in the 2019 thriller "122".

On the other hand, Lotfy is set to reteam up with actor Ahmed El Sakka in a new TV series for the first time in two decades.

The untitled series hails from director Ahmed Khaled Mousa and marks the first collaboration between the two stars in 20 years. 

They previously collaborated on films "Ean Aleashq Walhuaa" (2006), and "Saeidi Fil Gameaa Al Amerikeya" (1998).

The project is set to screen in the Ramadan 2024 drama marathon.

Lotfy participated last Ramadan with the TV series “Mozakerat Zog” (Memoirs of a Husband).

It also starred Khaled El Sawy, Aïcha Ben Ahmed, Noha Abdeen, Edward, Samaa Ibrahem, and others.

Maryam Ahmady directed the project from a screenplay by Mohamed Suleiman.

The series consists of 15 episodes and was based on a novel by the late great writer Ahmed Bahgat.
