I've read about the upcoming film based around king Tut. Alas there is nothing wrong with Tut, but aren't there many other, more interesting Pharaoh's or Queens? (to base a movie on) The two "shows" on Discovery about Nefertiti and Tut, soured me, and I don't know why. However, the one about Ramses was the worst! (Ramses the wrath of God or Man) Not only was it redundant, it was almost offensive. Anyway, I would love to see a film based on the Lord Meren Mysteries, or River God. The Christain Jacq volumes about Ramses wouldn't be a bad idea either, if the characters were a bit more realistic in the film version. (I've read the five novels, they're greating reading but Jacq made Ramses out to be too "perfect", as if he could do no wrong. In reality, Ramses was a God in his own right, but he was also human, with human flaws. I thought the female character were alright, but they were a bit "flat" and under developed to me) Anyway, just a thought.

I'd make one on Rameses II, he seems real interesting.
I'd leave the Exodus out of the movie though, since it's not known if the exodus happened during the reign of Rameses II. I've heard and believe that the exodus happened during the Hykos period (around the 17th dynasty). I'd probably start from the middle reign of Horemheb and then work towards Rameses reign. I'd cast the guy from the mummy Returns (locknah) as Horemheb, he's fight, tough, and doesn't mind being headstrong. For Rameses I might pick Morgan Freeman.

I see this is an old topic but if I was going to make a movie based on a pharaoh, it would have to be Ramesses II. His reign was so long and makes for plenty of storyline. He is one of my favourite pharaohs.
