We’re pleased to share that Alexander Siddig has yet another new project heading to screens! He co-stars in the new romantic comedy, May in the Summer, by writer/director Cherien Dabis (Amreeka) who also stars in the film.
May in the Summer is the story of three Arab-American sisters and their strong-willed, single mom as they prepare for a wedding in Jordan. The sisters are played by Cherien Dabis, Alia Shawkat, and Nadine Malouf with Hiam Abbas as their mother. Sid plays, Ziad, the bridegroom, and said it was “great fun” to film this “lovely script” by Dabis.
The film is currently in post-production and does not yet have a release date, but it sounds like the kind of independent film that would do well on the festival circuit next year. Stay tuned for further details! In the meantime, here are some lovely photos from the movie’s Facebook page, by photographer Thierry Van Biesen.
