Will Smith is reportedly set to achieve one of his biggest ambitions - to play Egyptian pharaoh Taharqa on the big screen.

The Men in Black star has been cast as the ancient ruler in a new movie -The Last Pharaoh.

Entertainment website Variety.com reports that Smith has long wanted to play Taharqa and was instrumental in getting Randall Wallace to write the screenplay.

The film will focus on Taharqa, who ruled Egypt from 690Bc until 664Bc, and his fierce battles with Assyrian king Esarhaddon.

Shepeskaf I said historically right I no they can never get a 100% accurate
but they can make a move as close to the real events ,not some fanciful move made to twist history the way someone wants it to look.
Some ppl have made the effort to make movies as correct as possible.
