THE GOOD DOCTOR Star Hill Harper & Archrok Entertainment Will Produce Hollywood's First Black Egypt Film
by BWW News Desk - Feb 15, 2018

Hill Harper has signed on with Archrok Entertainment to Co-Executive Produce the Egyptian film trilogy 'Protector of the Gods.' This historical project will be directed by the stories' creator, Kameko Tarnez. The story is set in a magical world created by Academy Award-winning VFX Director Pete Polyakov ('Mad Max: Fury Road,' 'Interstellar,' and 'Batman v Superman') and Academy Award-winning Production Designer David Bryan ('The Hurt Locker,' '47 Meters Down,' 'The Other Side of the Door'). Vol. 1 of the trilogy follows the journey of female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, played by British actress Shingai Shoniwa (lead singer of the multi-platinum selling group Noisettes). This will be followed by Vol. 2 (Nefertiti) and Vol. 3 (Cleopatra). Filming will begin in August 2018. 'Protector of the Gods' is an epic and magical story that we have yet to see envisioned nor attempted by a Hollywood studio. I am honored and excited to be co-executive producer of this amazing film and help bring it to audiences across the globe. Kameko's storytelling takes you through the larger than life history of ancient Egypt from a distinctly African perspective. I think it is essential that moviegoers understand and watch historically accurate depictions of African history, from more than simply a slave narrative. Now more than ever, audiences are hungry for stories such as these told without bias. I am excited to be a part of bringing it to millions around the world!' - Hill Harper (more...)
