This was already posted on another forum a long time ago and I decided to post it here. But I been waiting for a movie like this to happen for A LOOOOONG TIME. The Queens of Cadance are my most favorite queens in not just African history but history overall! This movie HAS to be good and HAS to be done right.
I hope it doesn't end up like Will Smith's film pitch about Taharqa that never went anywhere.
quote:EXCLUSIVE: Universal Pictures has acquired Warrior Queen, a pitch from Mark Rosenthal that is based on the true story of the young African Queen Amanirenas. Will Packer will produce through his Uni-based Will Packer Productions banner with his head of motion pictures James Lopez also producing. This reunites Packer with Rosenthal after they worked together on the Emmy-nominated Roots remake for The History Channel.
Queen Amanirenas ruled over the Kush Kingdom of Nubia, one of the richest Kingdom’s in Ancient Africa. She successfully led her army of Nubians into battle against the mighty invading Roman Empire forcing them to withdraw and negotiate peace. Uni production veep Sara Scott will oversee the project. Rosenthal’s script work includes the Tim Burton-directed Planet of the Apes, Mighty Joe Young, Mona Lisa Smile and Jewel of the Nile. He’s repped by UTA and Packer is represented by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
I was waiting for something like this, her story is movie material. So much so that when I read about it for the first time I wondered if it was an early script. But idk if I trust packer n Rosenthal, I hope they don't see this as a quick cash grab.
