How do they intend to portray images of the Prophet Muhammad in an upcoming film about Islam, since doing so is considered blasphemous?
An epic movie about Islam’s Prophet Muhammad is in the pipeline, backed by a producer of the Lord of the Rings. In accordance with Islamic rules, the Prophet cannot be depicted on screen. Images of the Prophet are considered blasphemous by Muslims.
American Barrie Osborne, who also produced The Matrix, told Reuters the film would be an “international epic” aimed at “bridging cultures.” The $150 million English language film should go into production in 2011.

“The film will educate people about the true meaning of Islam,” Osborne said. LINK
