The Secret of the Nile

Personal Message: The original rough draft of this 3-Star rated script (via the 'Screenwriter's Showcase Community') entitled, 'The Secret of the Nile', is a story of mystery and suspense that places emphasis on the demise of an ancient kingdom and the unification of one country. The script is accessible via the following webpage: http://www.screenwritershowcase.com/scripts/s723.php. Logline: In 'The Scorpion King' meets 'The Fall of the Roman Empire', 'The Secret of the Nile' is a suspense story placing emphasis on the demise of a prime kingdom and the unification of one country. The irony is that the very individuals that sought to protect their own people will be the very ones to bring the commoners of the village to their knees.

Author Bio: Synopsis: The Secret of the Nile is a fictional yet fact-based epic film (following a plausible interpretation of historical records) set in ancient Egypt around 3100BC and delivers a portrayal of a more realistic view of the Scorpion King, as what Hollywood has never seen before. King Hanor (a.k.a. the Scorpion King and king of upper Egypt), has lost his enthusiasm for the throne due to what he feels is going on within his own family. His daughter, Princess Ouca Medann, has involved herself with the commoners of the village and has 'supposedly' fallen in love with the city's skilled craftsman, Aaron. Ouca soon becomes pregnant with Aaron's child as a ploy to further the successes of her unfathomable desires (not made evident until the very end), consisting of her need for power and the unnatural feelings she holds dear for her half-brother, Fabius. The future son of the princess, who will be denied the rights to his true father due to Aaron's untimely murder, will be called Menes and become the successor of the king after Fabius and Ouca's conspiracy is exposed and then executed at the hands of Menes (Narmer) himself.

Should you review the script and find that the story has huge potential but may be in need of some revision, please do not hesitate to let me know. I will promptly comply with whatever suggestions you may have. Again, thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Stephanie Sharp
