King Tut (2005)

Since it appears that Roland Emmerich hasn't evolved as a filmmaker over the course of his last films, what expectations do people have of his next film, King Tut?

I think it could be a good story but with Emmerich behind it, it will be nothing but a big, emotionless spectacle that could kill further chances for better stories in the same era.

I'm only interested if it stars Steve Martin.

Now that would be a good movie. Maybe they can get Queen Latifah to play Queen Tut

I don't think it'll get made...

That said, I have been calling Emmerich a hack for years.
