New epic film tells the biblical story of Esther.
A new epic motion picture depicting the biblical Esther, the Queen of Persia (400-322 B.C.), is slated to be released in March or April, 2005.
Produced by Gener8Xion Entertainment, "One Night with the King" is based on the best selling novel "Hadassah: One Night With The King," authored by Tommy Tenney and Mark Olsen.
Hadassah, also known as Esther, is a Jewish girl whose parents were murdered. She is raised by her cousin Mordecai. Esther becomes the new Queen of Persia and saves the Jewish nation from destruction by its enemy Haman.
The film is set in Rajasthan, India -- Land of the Kings -- where principal photography has been completed.

"'One Night with the King' is a story of divine destiny," said Rich Cook, Vice President of Gener8Xion Entertainment. "Hadassah was this poor, unknown peasant girl, an orphan, an outcast from a distant land, who went on to become queen of a powerful empire -- proving that anyone, no matter what their circumstances, can be used in a remarkable way when 'destiny's' hand is upon them."
Directed by Michael Sajbel, the film includes cast Tiffany Dupont as Esther, Luke Goss as King Xerxes, James Callis as Haman, John Rhys-Davies as Mordecai, Peter O'Toole as the Prophet Samuel, Omar Sharif as Prince Memucan, John Noble as Prince Admantha, and Tommy Lister as Hegai.
"One Night with the King" is aimed to be released on March 25, 2005, which marks Good Friday and Esther's Jewish Feast of Purim.
