    The film will be directed by the English filmmaker Ben Charles Edwards, and the cast will include actors mostly from the UK, including Gary Stretch, Dimitar Nikolov, Mihail Mutafov, actress Dessy Tenekedjieva - who also produces the film - and others.
    The film would be the second international production to star the Israeli singer.
    The script of the first film Kirel is set to star in was written by the star herself along with her team, who offered it to a variety of studios and production companies in the United States before eventually being bought by Picturestart.
