Will Smith has long wanted to play the pharaoh Taharqa -- he battled Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt.
So Smith brought "Braveheart" scriptwriter Randall Wallace the Taharqa story, and now, the scribe will write the script with a working title, "The Last Pharaoh."
Oooooh, Smith is now officially morphing into a god!

Darren Aronofsky bounced back from the failure known as "The Fountain" to nab the Golden Lion at this year's Venice Film Festival.
"The Wrestler" stars Mickey Rourke as Randy "the Ram" Robinson, a former pro-wrestler looking for a comeback.
I'm a big Aronofsky fan, I loved "Pi" and "Requiem for a Dream," heck I even found tiny bits of hope with "The Fountain," so I'm very glad that "The Wrestler" is creating buzz in the awards circuit!
Rourke's comment on Aronofsky's triumph? "I am glad he had the balls to come back." Well said Mickey!!!
