And after production is finished they will kill the actor portraying Mohammed for daring to make the prophet appear human. Then they will kill all the other actors for the insolence of appearing in the film. Then they will kill the production crew for bring this abomination into existence. Then they will target anyone who watches.

Guaranteed ratings success!

The company said the film will be in English and will be translated into several different languages "to correct the wrong image Western societies have of Islam."

What a brilliant plan. I'm sure westerners would love to watch seven movies about a guy who doesn't appear in any of them, especially when they already have pre-conceived notions that he was crazy at best and a manipulative liar at worst. Add in the fact that the movies will probably cause riots because they're in English and violate whatever other arcane rules of Islam that the hardliners feel are sacred and you've got a real winner.

I truly hope the Middle East runs out of oil soon so they can realize they blew it all on frivolous shiat instead of investing it towards the future.

Sounds like a bad sitcom....


Student filmmaker with huge debt and a year to graduate gets it all paid if he makes one movie after he graduates. Turns out it's the Story of Mohammed. Give him a wacky Jewish roommate he brings along as the Editor and his girlfriend is converting to Scientology and you've got something there!

Incidentally, why not make the films POV from the prophet's perspective? You'd never have to depict more than maybe his hands or feet.

So, a movie about Mohammad that won't show Mohammad that will be translated into English so westerners can enjoy them. I don't need to have a crystal ball to see how this plays out. Movie gets released in theaters, then onto DVD/BluRay, then a ton of Youtube videos will be posted with the titles about them being the 'Special Edition' or something like it where the Prophet turns out to be either Richard Simmons, Homer Simpson, Captain Kirk, Yoda, the Mohammad from South Park, Honey Boo Boo, Snooki, RuPaul, the guy who played Christ is 'The Passion of the Christ', Obama, Romney, GW Bush, Dave Hester just shouting 'Yup', etc... and instead of saying "Those American Scamps, let's edit The Passion of the Christ to make Jesus Hitler", it's going to be a repeat of the attacks from September.

It's almost like they're wanting us to troll them so they can have another reason to get outraged...

You know, I'd actually watch this if they manage to pull it off. I'm a sucker for movies which have a technical gimmick.

Here's what they're talking about as far as traditional representations of the Prophet go:

7 films about a moon good worshiping goat farking pedophile? Who knew goat farking and pedophilia were so popular?

The idea of 72 virgins for martyrs is a mistranslated it is really 72 horny goats, but the word for goat and virgin are so close because Islamic women are so farking ugly they have to be veiled that is was mistranslated.

Virtually any offense can be blamed on the US (and the Jews/Israel).

But there was no banging.

No banging no pedo.

Artificial insemination of a 14yr old is fairly messed up, but still a step up.

optimus_grime:

You might note that the real issue here is the racism and xenophobia everywhere else - you think there's going to be a big groundswell of hate from most Americans due to someone making a movie about Mohammed?

Really?

There wasn't one the last time - except from Islamic radicals.

Oh, Jesus/Abraham/Mohammad, not this shiat again.

/what a stupid farking idea
//if they'd like the US to change their opinion of Islam, maybe they should come together and actually decry some of the heinous atrocities they inflict on each other.
///but yeah, a 7 part movie on something only they give a shiat about will be a real winner.

Christians made "The Passion of the Christ" and "Left Behind". Our culture can not claim superiority here.

No one culture holds a monopoly on terrible movies, although Turkey is trying. Besides, I thought Passion was made by an Austrailian Anti-Semite.
