Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz will make an appearance in the long-awaited third outing in the franchise, "Welad Rizk 3: El Qadya" (Sons of Rizk 3: The Knockout).

"Welad Rizk" first premiered in 2015 and hails from screenwriter Salah El Gehiny and director Tarek Al Eryan.

The film features an all-star ensemble cast that includes Ahmed Ezz, Amr Youssef, Karim Qassem, Mohamed Mamdouh, and Ahmed El Fishawy.

It also sees familiar faces such as Sayed Ragab, Eyad Nasser, Bassem Samra, and Mohamed Lotfy as well as newcomers Maged El Kedwany and Asmaa Galal.

Moreover, Asser Yassin is set to reappear as Al Shayeb in the installment and will have more screen time for the character in preparation for the "Welad Rizk" spin-off film "Al Shayeb" (The King).  

However, Ahmed Dawood will not be returning for the third entry.  

The threequel was first announced in 2019 in the post-credit scene of "Welad Rizk 2".

The threequel is shot in Riyadh, where the majority of the scenes will be shot and held under the support of the Entertainment Authority.

The film's estimated budget is around $8 million ( EGP 250 million). It is held during the historical match "Battle of the Baddest" between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou, a heavyweight professional crossover boxing match that took place on October 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It sees the boys kidnapping a champion after they follow him after the event.

"Welad Rizk 3" is set to premiere in the cinemas during the Eid al-Adha movie marathon.
