Epic Muhammad movie in pipeline
An epic movie about Islam's Prophet Muhammad is in the pipeline, backed by a producer of the Lord of the Rings.

American Barrie Osborne, who also produced The Matrix, told Reuters the film would be an "international epic" aimed at "bridging cultures".

In accordance with Islamic rules, the Prophet cannot be depicted on screen. Images of the Prophet are considered blasphemous by Muslims.

The $150m (£91m) English language film should go into production in 2011.

Qatari media company Alnoor Holdings, which is behind the plans, said it wanted to attract the "best international talent" for the film.

"The film will educate people about the true meaning of Islam," Osborne said.

Raja Sharif, vice president of international projects at Alnoor, told Reuters he expected to conclude deals next year.

That sounds great! But I'm wary of movies by non-Muslims about Islam. They're usually awful., full of stereotypes, anti-Islam type things and even outright lies! If it's a Muslim movie bringing in talent from outside in the style of The Message it should be awesome inshaAllah! I pray more people learn about the true life of our Prophet

I got an e-mail about this film from a cousin yesterday and I told him that there had been an idea to make a movie about Rasul maybe within the last year and that it was to be shot in Makkah-Madinah and made by the same people who were a part of the M. Akkad film The Message, so is this a different project? It sounds like it . . . the film that I had read about before was to be titled "Messenger of Peace" and it even has an entry on IMdb.com

Can anyone enlighten me on this? :-)
