Massoud, who starred in 'Aladdin' as a lead, will play the role of Prince Thomas in 'The Royal Treatment'.
Romantic drama The Royal Treatment, starring Egyptian-Canadian actor Mena Massoud, will be released exclusively on Netflix on January 20, 2022.
Massoud, who is a native of Cairo, moved to Canada when he was three years old.
Under the direction of Rick Jacobson (Ash vs Evil Dead), the film will star former Disney leads Laura Marano (Austin & Ally) and Massoud, who is best known for his role as another romantic leading man, in Disney’s live-action Aladdin.
The Royal Treatment, filmed in New Zealand, centres around New York salon owner and hair guru Isabella (Marano), and prince of the fictional Lavania, Thomas (Massoud). Isabella is a confident stylist, who doesn’t shy away from telling it how it is, always giving her honest opinion no matter how harsh it may be. Quite the opposite, Prince Thomas is stuck doing everything his family asks of him, including following through with an arranged marriage, for which he harbours no romantic feelings for his bride to be.
The film is executive produced by Steve Berman and Dan Read under FFI.
