The Hollywood production casted Mouawad in April last year after choosing from 1,700 candidates of numerous nationalities for the role.

The film was scheduled for release this year and set to be screened in numerous international festivals. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and shutdown of numerous cultural venues and the festival postponements, the production company refrained from providing any specific dates.

In His Only Son, Mouawad stars alongsideSara Seyed, Ottavio Taddei and Nicolai Perez.

Written and directed by David Helling, His Only Son is the filmmaker's debut feature.
