I just read a bit more about Will Smith’s next role, on his official website.
The site states that Oscar-nominated actor and box office powerhouse Will Smith is gearing up for his latest role in the upcoming drama The Last Pharaoh. He will play the role of Taharqa, a Nubian Egyptian Pharaoh, who battled the Assyrians during his 26-year-reign. The epic film will be written by Randall Wallace, the writer behind Braveheart, The Man in the Iron Mask, and Pearl Harbor. Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment will also act as producer of The Last Pharaoh, which will be released via Columbia Pictures. As of now, no release date has been announced for The Last Pharaoh.
