Led by director Hadi El Bagoury, Nelly Karim has now become the latest cast member on board for the film after Maged El Kedwany, Ahmed Malek, Ahmed Dawood, Dina El Sherbiny, Yasmin Raeis, Jamila Awad, Amr Youssef, Hany Adel, Ahmed Bedeir, Salwa Mohamed Aly, Kinda Alloush, Anoushka and Mohammed Farrag.
Hepta: The Last Lecture Facbook page was launched by the film's production company, The Producers, to function as an interactive platform to connect with the book fans in Egypt and the Arab world. The page is operating as a means of communication with audiences throughout the production process, and through which the company will select several members of the audience to have cameos in the film, which gives them an opportunity to participate in transforming their favorite novel into a cinematic work of art.
The film is based on Mohamed Sadek's bestselling novel which topped the charts in Egypt for several weeks and sold 36 editions since its release in 2014.
The film's helmer, director Hadi El Bagoury, has an extensive repertoire that includes several cinema blockbusters, such as; Wahed Saheh (2011) and the spine-chilling thriller Warda (2014). The film's cinematic adaption is scripted by Wael Hamdy, who previously wrote the cinematic hit Mikano (2009).
Hepta, which means number seven in ancient Greek, takes the reader in a journey to the worn-out world of love, which was tackled by thousands of authors throughout the years. Despite the fact that love is a recurrent theme, almost everyone commits the same mistakes, goes through the same pains and gets entangled in the same dreams and hopes. Sadek, in his novel, tracks the seven stages of love namely; the beginning, the encounter, the relationship bond, the wakefulness, the truth, which is followed by the decision, and then the ending, or the "Hepta" stage.
Hepta is Mohamed Sadek's third novel, preceded by Taha the Stranger, and A few Hours One Day. Hepta was released in the beginning of 2014 by Rewaq Publishing and was a huge success topping the best-seller lists at Shorouk Bookstores for several weeks. It was also the most read novel among Goodreads.com users during June 2014 in several Arab countries and more than 36 editions of the book have been published since its release.
