Mickey Rourke to play Genghis Khan



http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_movies_blog/2010/04/mickey-rourke-as-genghis-khan.html


Mickey Rourke is in talks to play Genghis Khan - the most famous Asian conqueror of all time:

“It’ll be a fascinating experience, maybe shooting in parts of India, they tell me, and China. I’ve never worked in either of those countries, so that’ll be new.

“Historically, if you read about the guy, he was a mystery. There’s a lot of myths surrounding him, but also some true stories. Milius went through that in prepping this, so he’ll be a fascinating character to play.”


Familiar?



Lots to do, even after Airbender.
