Murat Boz and Burcu Özberk in Amazon Prime movie
Great news for fans of Burcu Özberk. The actress will star in the film for Amazon Prime and thus become one of the first stars of the digital platform. What do we know about the project right now?
The internet giant Amazon, which entered the Turkish market two years ago, has delayed the development of its digital platform for a long time, relying solely on product sales. However, it seems that the situation has changed and Amazon Prime management is finally thinking about filling the platform with content.
The first thing that has been done is the professional dubbing of the original Amazon Prime series and movies, which will be available to Turkish subscribers soon. The purchase of Turkish films has also begun. So, Amazon Prime is currently fighting with Disney Plus for the right to broadcast the famous movie “Bergen”.
Another news that will delight the subscribers of the platform is the development of its own Turkish originals. Recall that initially, Amazon Prime agreed with OGM Pictures on the adaptation of the book “Museum of Innocence” starring Çağatay Ulusoy. However, the writer Orhan Pamuk rejected the proposed script, the shooting was stopped, Çağatay left to work on other projects. The rights to the adaptation are now being sought by Disney Plus, a rival of Amazon.
According to well-known journalist Birsen Altuntas, the first original Amazon Prime film in Turkey could be “You will see in a dream / Rüyanda Görürsün”, produced by 03 Medya, starring Murat Boz and Burcu Özberk. It is not yet known whether the platform is preparing the original TV shows, but most likely, their development has also begun, and we will find out the details in the near future.
