The Fresh Prince of Egypt

The Fresh Prince of Egypt

Will Smith is set to play Taharqa, the pharaoh who battled Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt. in a new film from “Braveheart” penner Randall Wallace.

Smith, who has long wanted to play the pharaoh, brought Wallace the Taharqa story, says Variety.

The film will focus on his battles with Assyrian leader Esarhaddon starting in 677 B.C.

It doesn’t sound like something that’ll have cinemagoers lining up around the block to see it – unlike the Summer blockbuster’s we’re used to seeing Smith in – but it’ll stretch Will’s acting muscles. Smith’s been ‘Will Smith – Movie Star’ for quite a while now, it’s time we saw ‘Will Smith – Actor’ again, don’t you think? Remember “Six Degrees of Separation” and “Ali”? Different guy to the one we saw in “Men in Black” and “Hancock”, hey?
