Will Smith Plays Last Pharoah

Will Smith is going to be "The Last Pharoah", which is what Variety is reporting. The Academy Award nominated actor will play a Pharoah in the Columbia drama crafted as a vehicle for Smith to play Taharqa, the pharaoh who battled Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt.

Smith, along with his production company Overbrook Entertainment will be one of the producers for the movie. The film will focus on Taharqa and on his battles with Assyrian leader Esarhaddon starting in 677 B.C.

I'm actually looking for this to be one of the greatest epic movies to come out, along with Troy, Gladiator, 300 and the like. Will is known for his ground-shattering box office hits so I'm expecting nothing less of this one.

As of now, no release date has been announced for The Last Pharoah
