AGC International, the international sales arm of fast-growing content studio AGC Studios, and Image Nation Abu Dhabi have unveiled the first teaser trailer for its major upcoming action film, Al Kameen (The Ambush), that tells the true story of the daring attempt to rescue a small group of Emirati soldiers trapped by rebel fighters in a mountainous valley.
Al Kameen (The Ambush) is the largest Arabic language feature film production ever in the GCC, with 400 cast and crew including an all-Emirati lead cast. It was shot entirely in the UAE and stars Marwan Abdulla Saleh, Khalifa Al Jassem and Mohammed Ahmed.
The film was co-produced by AGC Studios and Image Nation Abu Dhabi and directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, District B13), with producers Derek Dauchy (Roman J Israel, Esq., Victor Frankenstein) and Jennifer Roth (Black Swan). The film was written by Brandon Birtell (Furious 7) and Kurtis Birtell (Medal of Honour) in close consultation with the soldiers involved in the real-life 2018 ambush situation that inspired the plot. Image Nation Abu Dhabi provided a team of Emirati filmmakers and cultural consultants including Hana Kazim, Talal Al Asmani, Aliwiya Thani and Alia Al Qamzi.
Al Kameen (The Ambush) will be released in theatres in the UAE and across region later this year.
