    Marwan Kenzari Cast as Jafar in ALADDIN; Nasim Pedrad Also Joins Cast


    [​IMG]

    Marwan Kenzari, the actor who is poised to break through as part of the all-star cast of the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express, is in negotiations to star as the villain in Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin.

    At the same time, former Saturday Night Live comedienne Nasim Pedrad has landed a role created specifically for the new movie.

    Will Smith is toplining as the wish-granting genie while Mena Massoud will play the title character, a street rat who ends up over his head when he pretends to be a prince in order to win the hand of Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott.

    The story, which aims to follow that of Disney’s 1992 animated classic while also taking cues from the folktales in One Thousand and One Nights, is set in Agrabah, a fictional cosmopolitan city inspired by locations and cultures from the Middle East to India and China.

    If a deal makes, Kenzari will play Jafar, the grand vizier to the sultan of the Agrabah who wants to use the genie for his own nefarious plans. The character is in the pantheon of the most recognizable Disney villains and was voiced by Jonathan Freeman in the animated movie.

    Pedrad will play Mara, the handmaiden and friend to Jasmine. The part is described as a comedic supporting role.

    Guy Ritchie is directing the project from a script by John August (Big Fish, Corpse Bride). Dan Lin, who worked with Ritchie on Sherlock Holmes, is producing.

    Kenzari also appeared in MGM's Ben-Hur, Universal's The Mummy, and opposite Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close in Netflix’s action thriller What Happened to Monday.

    I'm just going to squint my eyes really hard and pretend that Sir Ben Kinsley in playing the role Jaffar. It seems the proper thing to do.

    [​IMG]

    Prince Ali has got some competition. Billy Magnussen is joining Disney's live-action Aladdin asPrince Anders.

    The Guy Ritchie-directed movie based on the 1992 animated pic will star relative newcomer Mena Massoud as the street rat turned prince. Power Rangers actress Naomi Scott will play Princess Jasmine, with Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) portraying the villain Jafar and Will Smith playing Genie.

    Magnussen will take on the new role created for the movie musical, with all other character details remaining buried in the Cave of Wonders. He joins Saturday Night Live alum Nasim Pedrad, who is set to play the original character Mara, a handmaiden and friend to Jasmine.

    John August (Big Fish, Corpse Bride) penned the script. Dan Lin, who worked with Ritchie on Sherlock Holmes, is producing through his Lin Pictures banner.

    Magnussen has some experience playing a Disney prince. The Tony nominee appeared in Rob Marshall's Into the Woods as Rapunzel's prince, performing the duet "Agony" with Chris Pine.

    The actor was last seen in the Aubrey Plaza indie Ingrid Goes West, and appeared in Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies and Adam McKay's The Big Short. Magnussen's small-screen work includes Netflix's Black Mirror, Epix's Get Shorty and FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson, in which he played Kato Kaelin. Up next, Magnussen will star opposite Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams in the New Line comedy Game Night.

    Arent the Coptic Christians there before the Arab/moslem conquests? The coptics were there since the Byzantines controlled Egypt before Moslem conquests.

    Yes they were, Arabian warriors were ruthless and unwavering. The Coptics were completely unprepared to deal with them.
