Actor Karim Abdelaziz prepares for "Blue Elephant 3" production.

Actor Karim Abdel Aziz has confirmed he will begin preparations for the third instalment of the blockbuster film "Blue Elephant" after Eid al-Adha. The film series is based on the novel of the same name by Ahmed Mourad, and follows the life of a psychiatrist named Yehia Rashdan, who confronts multiple personal and professional issues. Additionally, Blue Elephant 3 will see a shift in the plot as Rashdan’s character morphs into a "ghost". The second film in the franchise achieved significant success, achieving EGP104m ($6.6m) in box-office revenue since it premiered in Egypt and various Arab-speaking countries. The third film is expected to start shooting in August, following the completion of negotiations with the cast.
