"A $1 billion epic movie on the life and teachings of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is set to be produced by Doha-based Al Noor Holding.
The media company said that the movie endorsed by Islamic scholars, including Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, would be in seven parts and would be produced according to the highest international standards using the most sophisticated technical and audio-visual systems.
The company on Monday said that the team of experts has finished writing the scenario after overcoming a series of artistic and dramatic challenges.
The approval of leading Muslim scholars was necessary for the company to move ahead with the movie production." (thanks Sultan)
