Will Engin Altan Düzyatan play Barbaros?
After Çağatay Ulusoy left a historical project about the life of the famous pirates Barbarossa, the management of the TRT1 television channel began negotiations with another Turkish screen star. Will Engin Altan Düzyatan become a pirate? We became aware of the details that you wanted to know!
After the withdrawal of Çağatay Ulusoy and the directors Tylan brothers from the Barbarossa series, the project’s creators face the difficult task of finding a suitable replacement for this high-budget project of the state television channel TRT1. The director has not yet been found, but the name of the lead actor has already been announced.
As it became known, the management of the TV channel would like to see Engin Altan Düzyatan in the role of Aruj Barbarossa. The actor, known for his role as Ertugrul in the popular TV series of TRT1, was in talks with OGM Pictures to star in the TV series Garbage Apartment / Çöp Apartmanı, which is also being prepared for TRT1. But the management of TRT1 invited Engin Altan to take the vacant place of Barbaros. All indications are that Engin is likely to accept the offer, but so far no official announcement has been made.
ES Film also had problems with the selection of the second leading actor for the role of Hizir Reis, the future Hayreddin Barbarossa, the pirate and admiral of the Turkish fleet. The role was proposed to Alperen Duymaz, but he rejected the offer and is currently negotiating to participate in another project. The next candidate was Ulaş Tuna Astepe, who is now reading the script and has not yet given his consent.
Who will become the third protagonist of the project and which character we are talking about is not yet known. It is also not clear when the shooting begins. The construction of the shooting plateau is greatly delayed. Meanwhile, the team of another high-budget series of the TRT1 channel Divine Order starring Bugra Gulsoy and Ekin Koç has already begun work and, it seems, in the new season, viewers will see this particular TV show.
