CAIRO - 12 December 2017
Tunisian star Dhafer L'Abidine has revealed the news of the release of his new film Habbet Caramel in Lebanese cinemas. Habbet Caramel is based on the successful Lebanese TV series Caramel that he starred in last Ramadan.

Habbet Caramel will be released on the 21st of December, during the Christmas holidays. The film's production company Eagle Films released the trailer of Habbet Caramel that topped the YouTube views in Lebanon.

Together with L'Abidine, the film features a number of stars from the TV series such as Maguy Bou Ghosn, Talal El Jordi and Jessy Abdo. Habbet Caramel is directed by Elie F. Habib, written by Mazen Taha and produced by Eagle Films. The film tells a number of love stories with strange and interesting events.

Most recently, L'Abidine finished shooting his scenes for the American TV series North 40. The series is based on the book The Looming Tower written by Lawrence Wright. The book, that received 15 awards and honorable mentions including the Pulitzer Prize, offers a historical look at the way through which Al-Qaeda came into being and the events that led to the September 11 attacks. The shooting is taking place between the USA and South Africa. North 40 features Alec Baldwin, Jeff Daniels and Tahar Rahim, and is produced by Hulu.

Last Ramadan, L'Abidine also starred in Halawat Al Dounia by Hussein El-Minabbawi. Halawat Al Dounia stars Hend Sabry, Hanan Motawie, Anoushka and Ragaa Al-Giddawy. The TV series is directed by Hussein El-Minabbawi, written by Sama Ahmed and Engy Kassem, under the supervision of screenwriter Tamer Habib, and produced by Beelink Productions and Eagle Films.
