Mickey Rourke to star as Genghis Khan

By Siewaun

Mickey Rourke, who won a 2009 Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination for his leading role in "The Wrestler," and most recently starred as one of the villains in Jon Favreau's "Iron Man 2," is set to star as the emperor of the Mongol Empire, the Great Genghis Khan in a new movie.

Director-writer John Milius, who co-wrote and directed "Conan the Barbarian," "Red Dawn" and also directed "Farewell to the King" and "Flight of the Intruder," wrote the script for the Genghis Khan feature, which he will also direct.

In the movie, the Great Khan will be presented from his son and grandson’s point of view, how they saw him from their family. Audience will see him in many flashbacks to his mid-40s.

Shooting will take place in India and China, and involves a lot of horse-riding scenes, but no starting date as yet.
