The "Jaber" film team decided to cancel the shooting following the wide controversy that its script raised on social media platforms.

The team decided to cancel the shooting after a state of controversy was raised upon the film, in order to prevent anything that would harm national unity or raise issues that may affect national security, Director of the film Mohy Al Din Quandour said in a statement on Saturday, August 3, 2019.

The Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Majd Shweikeh had earlier emphasized that the government was following up on what circulated on social media platforms on the film, adding that a committee has been formed to study and evaluate the film's script and historical narrative and the results of the study will be available in a couple of days.
