A new movie about the biblical character Esther opens October 13, 2006.
It's called One Night with the King and is based on a book of the same name by Tommy Tenney, who is also a co-producer on this project. The film's cast includes:
- James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as Haman
- John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark) as Mordecai
- Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia) as Samuel
- Omar Sharif (Doctor Zhivago) as Prince Memucan
Esther is played by newcomer Tiffany DuPont.
You can view a trailer at the film's website. It looks like a high-quality production. And certainly has a great cast.
Here are some movie stills. You can see more at the film's website.

I'm not sure if the movie will be released nation-wide. I hope so.
Look for it in your area beginning October 13!
