In response to the recent crises sparked in the region by the now-notorious anti-Islam short film, Information Minister Salah Abdel-Maksoud and film director Shoukry Abu Amira, vice president of the Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU), have agreed to produce a major documentary film on the life of Prophet Mohamed.

The film – to be entitled 'Mohamed: Messenger of God, Gift of Mercy' – will be directed by Egypt's Samiha El-Ghonemy, one of the Arab world's most prominent documentary filmmakers. El-Ghonemy has directed religious-themed films in the past, including 'The Holy Family's Journey in Egypt.'

A handful of scholars from Egypt's Al-Azhar are already reportedly working on a screenplay for the film, which will be jointly produced by the Egyptian Cinema Syndicate and the ERTU.

Members of the syndicate are also reportedly mulling production of a feature film portraying the life of the Prophet.

Inflammatory Statement
AhramOline reproter should not say "US-made" movie. It imply that US GOv. is responsible. FYI, It is unconstituional for US GOv. to discriminate against any religion. Islam is [racticed freely in US. You have to be careful in your future reproting. Allah AKber.
