The directors of the legendary Magnificent Century series return to work with the grandest historical series of recent years. Can they surpass their own success? The fans of Çağatay Ulusoy, who will play the leading role in the TV show, hope so!
As is known for the new season, TRT1 state channel is preparing a historic project with a huge budget dedicated to the lives of the Barbarossa brothers. So far, officially, only Çağatay Ulusoy, who is the main star of the show is in the cast. The actor had been preparing to work on the project for more than two years. All other names remain at rumor level.
And so, after announcing a superstar in the lead role, ES FILM officially announces another important acquisition. The producers of the company managed to reach an agreement with the brothers Durul and Yağmur Tylan, who will become directors of the project. Recall that they previously worked on such legendary series as Magnificent Century / Muhteşem Yüzyıl and Wounded Love / Vatanım Sensin.
As it became known the producers of the series finally chose the actor for the role of Hizir Reis, Aruj Barbarossa’s (Çağatay Ulusoy) younger brother. The name is not yet revealed, but it is known that it will be a well-known actor, not a no name as many assumed. The series will be the flagship of TRT1 and will remain on the screens for three seasons. Çağatay Ulusoy is expected to play only in the first season, after which his character will tragically die and Barbarossa’s name will be taken by his younger brother, who will continue his fight for justice. Filming will begin in mid-July.
Who will play the role of Barbarossa Junior? When will the series be aired? Who will be Çağatay Ulusoy’s female co-star in the project? We will learn about all this very soon.
