Hanan Savyon and Guy Amir are best known for creating and starring in Israeli TV shows Asfur [pictured] and Ptzuim BaRosh.

Israeli TV stars Hanan Savyon and Guy Amir unveiled first images from their big-screen debut Maktub at Pitch Point on Sunday.

The pair — known as the creators and stars of popular shows such as Asfur and Ptzuim BaRosh (Scarred) — joined forces with childhood friend and director Oded Raz.

It is the second feature for Raz after The Journey To Astra, which was spun out of children’s TV series Galis.

In Maktub, Savyon and Amir play two mobster debt collectors who turn to philanthropy after they survive a terror attack. The trio unveiled a sneak preview of the Jerusalem-based caper.

An English-language remake of Asfur, about four men living on a farm, is soon to air on Us network Fox as Hard Up.

Former Warner Bros executive John Wells acquired the remake rights in 2011. Adar Shafran of Firma »
