His Saudi fans of which there is no shortage of were quick to pick it up and congratulate Al Sheikh. While Cello was under the radar for a long time, this post by Lionel Messi has clearly gotten it huge amounts of attention. Dareen Lynn Bousman, best known for directing a series of Saw films, directed the horror thriller, which stars Oscar winner Jeremy Irons (House of Gucci) and Tobin Bell (Saw).

The film was shot in Saudi Arabia and the Czech Republic. The narrative revolves around an aspiring cellist who realizes that his brand-new instrument is far more dangerous than he anticipated, according to Deadline. Saudi Arabia-based Rozam Media funded and holds the rights to the film.

While a precise release is yet to be announced, a post retweeted by Turki Al Sheikh suggests it would be sometime in 2022.
