Will Smith is going for godliness. Well, at least Columbia Pictures hopes he is. The studio has picked up Braveheart scribe Randall Wallace to write The Last Pharaoh, an epic that could become a starring vehicle for Smith.

Will Smith for The Last Pharaoh


The Last Pharaoh will have Smith play Taharqa, the pharaoh who battled Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt.

Smith has long wanted to play the title character and it was he who brought the the story of Taharqa to Wallace. The film will focus on his battles with Assyrian leader Esarhaddon starting in 677 B.C.

Will Smith can next be seen in Seven Pounds, a film that had him reteam with Pursuit of Happyness director Gabriele Muccino.

Wallace recently signed on to a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Disney adaptation of the WWII battle saga Killing Rommel. He will work with the novel's author, Steven Pressfield, on the script.
