A Hologram for the King, a film by German director Tom Tykwer and starring Tom Hanks, will showcase Hurghadas underwater reefs

The Tourism Ministry is planning to help film companies shoot movies in Egypt with the aim of promoting the countrys tourist destinations.

The first of these projects will be the movie A Hologram for the King, starring by Tom Hanks and directed by German director Thomas Sebastian. Some shots will be taken at Hurghada.

Sebastian said he wants to shoot some scenes underwater in Hurghada, which is home to rare coral reefs and fascinating scenery.

Tourism Minister Hesham Zaazou said he hopes the measure attracts international cinematic production companies to tourist destinations, including documentary filmmakers.

The film, based on a 2012 novel by author Dave Eggers, tells the story of a washed-up American salesman who travels to Saudi Arabia in a last-ditch attempt to find a fortune.

A Hologram for the King is set to premiere in November 2015.
