From the directors of Bad Boys For Life, “Rebel” premiers in Rabat

From the directing duo of Bad Boys For Life, “Rebel” premiers in Rabat in the presence of its directors, Adil Elarbi and Bilal Fallah.

An exclusive screening was held at Cineatlas, where fans of the directors watched and discussed the film with the directors.

Rebel tells the story of Kamal who traveled to Syria to help war victims. When he arrived, he was forced to join an armed group and found himself stranded in the city of Raqqa.

Nassim, his younger brother who dreams of joining him, becomes an easy target for jihad recruiters as their mother Leila attempts to protect him.

Starting a very neatly picked cast, the movie features Loubna Azabal in the role of Leila, Aboubakr Bensaihi as the lead character Kamal, Amir El Arbi as his brother Nassim, and Tara Aboud portraying Noor.

Loubna Azabal is an international sensation known mostly for her role in the critically acclaimed movie by Dennis Villeneuve, Incendies.

The Belgian actress of Moroccan origins started in Moroccan movies before rebel, she started in Maryam Touzani’s “Adam” and “Le blue du caftan”, and in Laila Marrakchi’s “Rock the Casbah”.

The directing duo Adil and Bilal are mostly known for directing the third Bad Boys movie called Bad Boys For Life.

Adil and Bilal took over this third installment of the franchise back in 2018 when director Joe Carnahan gave up on the movie over scheduling conflicts.

They took part in Disney’s Ms. Marvel as directors and executive producers.
They ended up landing the directing of HBO’s Batgirl, which never saw the light of day for tax issues according to Warner Bros. The directors expressed their huge deception after the production company’s decision never to release the movie.

The two directors first met when attending “Hogeschool Voor Wetenschap en Kunsten in Schaerbeek” school in Brussels Belgium to learn movie making.

For their latest movie’s score, they chose none other than the Moroccan singer and songwriter Oum.

Rebel was played at the Cannes festival outside of the official competitions.
It will premiere be available in Moroccan and French cinemas on the 31st of August, and will premiere in Germany on the fifth of October.
