    One Night With the King Faces a Further Delay

    A while back I discussed One Night With the King, a film about Esther starring Tiffany Dupont in the lead role, and Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole. It was due to be released this Easter, after a number of delays had pushed it back from its original release date of 2004.

    Sadly according to this unofficial website it looks like this film now won't be release until September 2006.

    That site's guess is that the marketers of the film are waiting to see how Tiffany Dupont's new television series is received. On the other hand, I can't help wondering if they have decided not to compete with the Easter TV release of the new film version of The Ten Commandments, which also stars Omar Sharif. It certainly seems like the film is finished, and yet these delays (about 2 years worth now) are somewhat puzzling.

      Even though the movie had been pushed back 2 years, i can tell you that it is definitely worth the wait, in ONE WEEK THE MOVIE IS FINALLY HERE. I had gotten to see a rough cut of it before its release, and from what I saw of it, even though it was missing the final details, it was amazing!! It was beautifully shot in the ancient palaces of India, breathtaking scenes. The actors play their part very well, Tiffany Dupont fits the role of Esther perfectly. It's a story of courage, determination, and standing up for what one believes in, even if that means death. I can not wait for its release next week, I'll be the first one in line! It's a great movie for family and friends alike, take one Night to see this movie!!
