The film producer Barrie Osborne behind blockbuster films such as Lord of the Rings and The Matrix has taken up the task to direct a film about Islam's Prophet Muhammad(the exalted).
A company in Qatar is paying 150 million dollars for a film which depicts events of the Prophet (the exalted) and the effect it had on the population around him.
The movie will uphold all "Islamic laws" which forbids picturing the Prophet (the exalted).
The man to play the role of Prophet Muhammed(the exalted) will therefore not appear in the film which according to Variety Magazine is based on the events before the prophets birth and up to the time where he passed away.
"The film will tell people the true meaning of Islam" Osborne says, according to Variety Magazine.
I know this is not the type of news one would normally see around here.
But I found it interesting enough to share.
It is directly translated from a Danish article I read some minutes ago.
So I unfortunately have no direct source to link to
