Universal Pictures has acquired the Will Packer-produced film Warrior Queen based on the true story of the young African Queen Amanirenas. The project reunites Packer and writer Mark Rosenthal who worked together on the Emmy-nominated Roots remake for The History Channel.
Queen Amanirenas ruled over the Kush Kingdom of Nubia, one of the richest Kingdoms in Ancient Africa. She successfully led her army of Nubians into battle against the mighty invading Roman Empire forcing them to withdraw and negotiate peace.
Packer’s producing credits includes Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along, and Think Like a Man. Are you guys interested in the movie? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @AllBlackMedia.
