Kuwait’s Kharafi Group is in talks to bring Pinewood Studios, a U.K. film and television company, to Egypt, where Kharafi is building a Red Sea tourism resort, the National reported, citing Adel Rady, who heads Kharafi’s Marsa Alam Tourism Development unit.

Talks that began two years ago and were postponed during Egypt’s revolution are being revived and Kharafi is seeking to establish a free zone for Pinewood, the newspaper said.
